Dear Touro Nevada Campus Community:

As we approach the celebration of Passover, I want to share with you a few thoughts and reflections.

For the Jewish people, Passover is a time when we remember the journey from slavery in Egypt to freedom in the Promised Land.  The Passover tradition inspires and motivates us through the best of times and the very worst of times as well.  Passover is also a time when families come together to celebrate with each other. 

Unfortunately, at this time when we are all facing great challenges related to COVID-19, we are not able to be together – with our families and as a campus community.  We are exercising extreme social distancing – a sacrifice needed so that someday soon, we can all gather together safely.

For me, this year’s celebration of Passover has a special meaning.  The history of Passover shows the resilience and endurance of the Jewish people during the most trying of circumstances.  It is this same resilience and endurance that we all are demonstrating today which gives me great confidence that we also will get through these difficult times.

I thank each of you for your continued commitment to Touro and our community.  I look forward to seeing you all together on campus again in the near future.  I encourage you to stay strong in your resolve over the coming weeks, and we will all be strengthened for our shared journey ahead.

Chag Sameach (Happy Passover) and be safe and be well,  

Shelley Berkley

CEO and Senior Provost
