LMS Vaccination Policy

The health and safety of our children are of the utmost importance and one of our shul’s top priorities. As a follow-up to the November note from our local Orthodox rabbis regarding vaccinations, we want to re-emphasize our existing LMS policy on vaccinations: Children who attend ongoing programs at Lower Merion Synagogue must be immunized except when due to a documented medical issue.

If your child is not fully vaccinated according to his or her pediatrician’s schedule, please do not allow your child to attend any programs at LMS, including minyanim, Shabbat groups, Bnei Akiva, Pirchei/Torah Youth, Bnos, Mommy and Me, or any other large gathering, unless due to a medical issue that is documented by your child’s pediatrician. This policy is for the health and safety of our children. Please rest assured that all of our group leaders are fully vaccinated, including flu shots.
