Black and Indigenous lives matter!

Today, June 24, and in partnership with Beth Israel, we hung a banner on our street sign showing our support for people of colour in our community, and indicating our commitment to do the work of undoing racism. 

Each time you pass the sign, or enter the parking lot, may you be reminded to keep learning and listening. It is in opening our eyes and changing our hearts that we can then dismantle institutional racism in our congregations and in our community. Only then will we truly be an inclusive society where all belong, feel safe, and know that they matter. 

When will we re-open?

The UFP Board has decided that we will not return to in-person services and meetings until at least October 4. UFP’s committees and groups should continue to meet on-line as well. A memorial service may be allowed if we are able to meet the safety protocols.

The Board will be monitoring the situation and will reassess this decision regularly, knowing that the decision to re-open will need to be made jointly with Beth Israel. 

To arrive at this decision, the Board met with UFP’s leadership, researched protocols and trends, and consulted with Beth Israel. Safety and inclusion were two of the highest considerations. 

Should you decide to gather socially, the Board encourages everyone to follow public health guidelines and help keep each other safe during this time. Reach the Board here
