Kehillah Students Must be Vaxed. Other Local Jewish schools are Still Weighing their Options.
LCW Partner Michael Blacher recently weighed in on the discussion of COVID-19 vaccine mandates at California Jewish high schools. In J. The Jewish News of Northern California article “Kehillah Students Must be Vaxed. Other Local Jewish schools are Still Weighing their Options,” which was published Aug. 18, Blacher explained that California Jewish high schools were not “seriously considering vaccine mandates” before the delta variant, but are now rethinking this policy in the wake of the new variant. Blacher shared, “Before the delta variant, I think most schools — not just Jewish day schools — felt that there were better ways to increase vaccinations and maintain a safe environment than requiring vaccinations. However, since the rapid spread of the delta variant and the increased risk of infection, more schools have opted to require vaccinations. What’s changed is not the law or the legal risks, but the virus.” Read the full article here.
