I am pleased to present to you this Guide to our plans for the upcoming fall semester 和 reopening of our campuses. 无论在形式还是内容上，这学期都将是独一无二的. 亚博足彩app将以不同的方式生活、工作和学习. 但它的巨大力量就在于它的不同之处.
亚博足彩app的使命是丰富道德, 亚博足彩app每个学生的智力和精神的发展, empowering them with the knowledge 和 abilities to become people of impact 和 leaders of tomorrow. Next year’s studies will be especially instrumental in shaping the course of our 学生’ lives. 性格是在逆境中形成和发展的. This is the kind of teachable moment that 亚博足彩app was made for. 像这样, we have developed an educational plan for next year that features a high-quality student experience 和 prioritizes personal growth during this Coronavirus era. 亚博足彩app的学生将能够克服这些困难, issues 和 opportunities posed by our COVID-19 era with our stellar rabbis 和 faculty, 以及他们在Yeshiva的亲密朋友和同龄人.
制定秋季计划, we have convened a Scenario Planning Task Force made up of representatives across the major areas of our campus. 他们的计划以最新的医疗信息为指导, 政府的指令, 拉比们的直接意见, 教师和学生, 和 best practices from industry 和 university leaders across the country. I am deeply thankful to our task force members 和 all who supported them for their tireless work in addressing the myriad details involved in bringing 学生 back to campus 和 restarting our educational enterprise.
与亚博足彩app工作队的建议一致, I am announcing today that our fall semester will reflect a hybrid model. It will allow many 学生 to return in a careful way by incorporating online 和 virtual learning with on-campus classroom instruction. It also enables 学生 who prefer to not be on campus to have a rich student experience by continuing their studies online 和 benefitting from a full range of online student services 和 extracurricular programs.
在把亚博足彩app的学生带回校园，安全是亚博足彩app的首要任务. 下个学期，校园生活的方方面面都将发生变化. 聚会将是有限的，大型课程将完全转移到网上. Throughout campus everyone will need to adhere to our medical guidelines, 包括社会距离, 戴着口罩, 以及亚博足彩app的检测和接触者追踪政策. 因为亚博足彩app专注于最小化风险, our undergraduate 学生 will begin the first few weeks of the fall semester online 和 move onto the campus after the Jewish holidays. This schedule will limit the amount of back 和 forth travel for our 学生 by concentrating the on-campus component of the fall semester to one consecutive segment.
在整个规划过程中，亚博足彩app使用了调光开关的类比. 重新开放亚博足彩app的校园将不是一个简单的二元关系, 就像开/关灯开关, but more like a dimmer in which we have the flexibility to scale backwards 和 forwards to properly respond as the health situation evolves. 有些计划很可能会改变, depending upon the progression of the virus 和/or applicable state 和 local government guidance.
Before our semester begins, we will provide more updates reflecting our most current guidance. 请浏览亚博足彩app的网站，于.Edu/fall2020定期更新. 在阅读完本指南后，亚博足彩app明白了这一点, 你可能会有很多额外的问题, 所以亚博足彩app也会在网上发布一个广泛的FAQ部分. 另外, 亚博足彩app还将为教职员工举行社区号召活动, 学生, 员工和家长们在接下来的几个月里.
在这个时刻规划未来无疑是一件令人难堪的事. This Coronavirus has reminded us time 和 time again of the lessons from our Jewish tradition that we are not in full control of our circumstances. But our tradition also teaches us that we are in control of our response to our circumstances. 下个学期将会有重大的挑战和改变. There will be some compromises 和 minor inconveniences--not every issue has a perfect solution. 而是信念和刚毅, mutual cooperation 和 resilience are essential life lessons that are accentuated during this period. 如果亚博足彩app都承诺以仁慈的态度回应, 善良, 和爱, we can transform new campus realities into profound life lessons for our future.
Deeply rooted in our Jewish values 和 forward focused in preparing for the careers 和 competencies of the future, 亚博足彩app与你同行, 亚博足彩app的犹太大学社区, 穿过这些未知的水域. 明年将是亚博足彩app学生成长的一年, 和 together we will rise to the moment so that our 学生 will emerge stronger 和 better prepared to be leaders of the world of tomorrow.
