Tawonga’s Response to COVID-19
With COVID-19 turning our lives upside down, we wish we could offer Tawonga’s fresh mountain air as a respite. Unfortunately, after careful consideration, we have determined that it is not yet safe to re-open our site for programs from July through October. The known and unknown risks of transmission conflict with Tawonga’s fundamental commitment to the health and safety of our families. We will reopen as soon as we are ready to do so.
All families canceled from 2020 programs will have a priority registration period beginning on November 18. Click here to view 2021 programs. Please note that programs and dates may change as a result of COVID-19.
Tawonga at Home Programs
If any community knows how to stay connected, it’s Tawonga. So many of you are joining our alternative programs. Together, we are finding meaningful ways to blur the physical distance that separates us. Please click here to learn more about upcoming alternative programs.
From ruach-filled Shabbat song sessions, meaningful family-friendly Torah services and a chance to unplug with Tawonga Radio, there’s something for everyone on the menu this summer to infuse the spirit of Tawonga into your homes.
