Over four months without being together, after taking every precaution that we could re-start in-person activity, we had our first Shabbat meal COVID-style.
The meal was reserved just for students learning in Rome, each person had to wear a mask while standing and was seated 1 meter apart from the next person.
Instead of family-style dinner, each student was welcomed with a plated entree, followed by two courses and dessert. The drinks were served in individual containers and all items were sanitized before and after the use.
The students were able to interact but at the same time respecting the new rules, more meals are planned in the future.
