Important Updates Regarding Local Fires

Here is the latest VBS update for Friday, December 8:

  • VBS Schools are back open today!
  • VBS Campus is open
  • Morning minyan will proceed at 7:30am
  • As of now, all other adult programs and Shabbat activities are going on as scheduled for Friday

Those affected by the fire in the Sepulveda Pass are very much in our thoughts. There are public evacuation centers at 14201 Huston Street in Sherman Oaks, 17015 Burbank Boulevard at Balboa Park in Encino, and 15100 Erwin at the Delano Recreation Center that are best prepared to serve evacuees. In addition, VBS can provide our members with a place to stay in the short term as the fires are being extinguished. Please contact our main office at 818.788.6000 if you need that assistance.

Stay tuned for more updates.
