Our own Rabbi Amy was quoted in the lead to an article in Washington Jewish Week addressing this topic on May 6. According to the article, "American synagogues closed their doors in March to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Many expected that several weeks or, at most, a few months would elapse before the pandemic was under sufficient control for in-person religious services to resume. But as the weeks wear on, it is becoming increasingly clear that the resumption of normal activity remains a far-off proposition...That leaves Rosh Hashanah, which this year begins Sept. 18, as a major question mark." Check it out and read Rabbi Amy's input to the discussion at the meeting of Gov. Northam's task force of faith leaders (forgive the bit of careless proofreading!).
