Levinson Axelrod, P.A. Partner Todd D. Wachtel, Esq. has volunteered to serve as the Chairperson of the Reopening Task Force for Congregation Beth Chaim in West Windsor, New Jersey as it looks to reopen its doors after closing in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
After being asked to chair various committees, Todd is actively meeting with stakeholders, business leaders, medical professionals, educators, and Clergy in an effort to create sensible, guidance-driven policies and procedures to help re-open the Congregation’s day care, religious school, and other facilities in a manner that will keep everyone safe and healthy.
Todd’s work with Beth Chaim involves almost nightly Zoom meetings, as well as virtually attending lectures and reviewing policies from the Union of Reform Judaism, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the state of New Jersey.
Every day, new developments and evolving guidance have brought new opportunities and challenges to this project. As a Board Certified Workers’ Compensation Attorney, Todd is well-prepared to provide rapid analysis and advice in his capacity on the Task Force, just as he has done for clients at Levinson Axelrod for years.
