Message From Our President
Dear Students, Faculty, 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 Yeshiva University is to enrich the moral, intellectual and spiritual development of each of our students, 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 Yeshiva University was made for. As such, 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 students will be able to work through the difficulties, 新冠肺炎时代带来的问题和机会，以及沙巴体育app一流的拉比和教师, 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, government directives, direct input from our rabbis, faculty and students, 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 students 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, including social distancing, wearing facemasks, 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, like an on/off light switch, 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.
在学期开始之前，沙巴体育app将提供更多的更新，反映沙巴体育app最新的指导. Please check our website, gavintextile.com/fall2020 for regular updates. 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. Additionally, we will also be holding community calls for faculty, students, 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. 但沙巴体育app的传统也告诉沙巴体育app，沙巴体育app可以控制自己对环境的反应. Next semester will present significant challenges and changes. 会有一些妥协和小的不便——不是每个问题都有完美的解决方案. But faith and fortitude, 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, kindness, and love, 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, we journey together with you, our Yeshiva University community, through these uncharted waters. Next year will be a formative year in the lives of our students, 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.
