October 25, 2020 Newsletter – Covid Update

The State of Illinois has announced new COVID-19 related restrictions this week, decreasing the number of people that may gather indoors.  Given the vulnerable age of many of our members, Arya Samaj of Chicagoland will remain only partially open until further notice.  The Sunday program at Arya Samaj will be limited to havan-only on Sundays from 11AM-12Noon.  In-person attendance will be limited to upto four people, who can safely sit on either side of the havan maintaining social distancing guidelines.  Please email us at info@arysamajchicago.com if you would like to attend in-person or you may contact us at the Arya Samaj phone line: (815) 735-1141.  You will receive a confirmation email or return call.  Please ensure you are wearing a mask for the entire time you are at the Samaj.

 

Arya Samaj is now offering weekly havan services via zoom.  Bhajan and Pravachan will be held online via zoom. We invite our members to sponsor the Sunday service from the privacy of your home for all special occasions during COVID-times.  We will be looking for sponsors and for volunteers to sing bhajans via zoom.  Special Diwali celebrations will also be held online and additional details would be shared in the coming week.  Save the date on Sunday, Nov 15th for a special Diwali Sunday Service via zoom, with a special talk, bhajans and our youth performing!
