BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Rumors circulating Boca Raton that Congregation B’Nai Torah has closed due to a COVID outbreak are true.

While B’Nai Torah officials did not immediately respond to a request this evening from BocaNewsNow.com, parents are sharing social media posts about an outbreak in the summer program. Those contacting our newsroom are overall supportive of B’Nai Torah’s decision to not only close the campus, but to share details of the situation.

”They are setting a good example,” said a parent who asked us to withhold her name.

According to a post by Early Childhood Center Director Naomi Gordon, two children tested positive. Out of an abundance of caution, B’Nai Torah closed its entire early childhood operation. There is no indication that the children contracted COVID at the camp.

“Many have asked if the two children who tested positive have siblings,” wrote Gordon. “I am pleased to let you know that do not have siblings or family members in any other classes in our camp.”

“Most of our other classes have a connection whether it be a family member or close friend and this is why we made our decision to be proactive. We have asked all families from these two rooms to report their testing results. We promise to keep ou informed should there be a positive case.”

BocaNewsNow.com has learned other camps are also dealing with COVID situations, but it was not immediately clear the size of outbreak or potential spread. There are no reports — as of Wednesday evening — of other closures.
