Dear 学生s, 教师, Staff and Friends,
我很高兴向大家介绍沙巴体育app即将到来的秋季学期和校园重新开放的计划指南. In form and in content, this coming semester will be like no other. We will live differently, work differently and learn differently. But in its very difference rests its enormous power.
The mission of 沙巴app is to enrich the moral, intellectual and spiritual development of each of our 学生, 用知识和能力让他们成为有影响力的人和未来的领导者. 明年的学习将特别有助于塑造沙巴体育app学生的人生道路. Character is formed and developed in times of deep adversity. This is the kind of teachable moment that 沙巴app was made for. 像这样, 沙巴体育app制定了明年的教育计划，以高质量的学生体验为特色，并在冠状病毒时代优先考虑个人成长. Our 学生 will be able to work through the difficulties, issues and opportunities posed by our COVID-19 era with our stellar rabbis and faculty, as well as their close friends and peers at Yeshiva.
To develop our plans for the fall, 沙巴体育app召集了一个场景规划工作组，由校园各主要区域的代表组成. Their planning has been guided by the latest medical information, 政府的指令, 拉比们的直接意见, 教师和学生, and best practices from industry and university leaders across the country. 我对沙巴体育app的特别小组成员以及所有支持他们的人深表感谢，感谢他们为解决让学生重返校园和重新启动沙巴体育app的教育事业所涉及的无数细节所做的不懈努力.
In concert with the recommendations from our task force, I am announcing today that our fall semester will reflect a hybrid model. 通过将在线和虚拟学习与校园课堂教学相结合，它将使许多学生以一种谨慎的方式重返校园. 它还使那些不喜欢待在校园的学生能够通过继续在线学习来获得丰富的学生体验，并受益于全方位的在线学生服务和课外项目.
In bringing our 学生 back to campus, safety is our first priority. Many aspects of campus life will change for this coming semester. Gatherings will be limited, larger courses will move completely online. Throughout campus everyone will need to adhere to our medical guidelines, 包括社会距离, 戴着口罩, and our testing and contact tracing policies. Due to our focus on minimizing risk, 沙巴体育app的本科生将在秋季学期的前几周开始在线学习，并在犹太节日后搬到校园. 这个时间表将限制沙巴体育app的学生往返旅行的数量，将秋季学期的校园部分集中在一个连续的部分.
Throughout our planning, we have used the analogy of a dimmer switch. Reopening our campuses will not be a simple binary, 就像开/关灯开关, 但更像是一个调光器，在其中，沙巴体育app可以灵活地来回调整，以随着卫生状况的演变作出适当的反应. It is very possible that some plans could change, 取决于病毒的发展和/或适用的州和地方政府的指导.
Before our semester begins, we will provide more updates reflecting our most current guidance. 请浏览沙巴体育app的网站，于.Edu/fall2020定期更新. We understand that even after reading through this guide, you might have many additional questions, so we will be posting an extensive FAQ section online as well. 另外, we will also be holding community calls for faculty, 学生, staff and parents over the next couple of months.
Planning for the future during this moment has certainly been humbling. 这种冠状病毒一次又一次地提醒沙巴体育app，沙巴体育app不能完全控制沙巴体育app的环境，这是犹太传统的教训. But our tradition also teaches us that we are in control of our response to our circumstances. Next semester will present significant challenges and changes. There will be some compromises and minor inconveniences--not every issue has a perfect solution. 而是信念和刚毅, 相互合作和复原力是重要的人生课程，在这个时期得到强调. And if we all commit to respond with graciousness, 善良, 和爱, we can transform new campus realities into profound life lessons for our future.
根植于沙巴体育app犹太人的价值观，专注于为未来的职业生涯和能力做准备, 沙巴体育app与你同行, 沙巴体育app的犹太大学社区, 穿过这些未知的水域. Next year will be a formative year in the lives of our 学生, 沙巴体育app将团结起来迎接这一时刻，让沙巴体育app的学生变得更强大，为成为明天世界的领导者做好更好的准备.
