COVID -19 has altered our community calendar. Most of the events have been canceled or postponed. We do not have verification that some of these programs are canceled, but in general the Jewish institutions and organizations of the Capital District are attempting to follow the governor’s medical dictates that to stem the tide of the pandemic —we must not congregate.
Please call or contact organizations if there is a question about an event listed here. If listed as canceled it may have been rescheduled.
ONGOING EVENTS are now visible below the dated events. If you would like to submit an event or modify an existing event, please e-mail the details here.
