Introduction

For those that are comfortable reconvening in person, we are pleased to make available limited opportunities for worship and study.

All worship services will continue to be available via livestreaming – anyone who is not entirely comfortable being back together in person is encouraged to take advantage of the technology that is available to us all.

What You Need to Know

  • For your safety and the safety of others, we request that masks be worn inside the building

  • There will be no Oneg Shabbat (food/drink) until further notice
  • Police officers will be present at all services to ensure the safety of everyone at the building

Why This and Why Now?

These evolving summer procedures are intended, in part, to help us prepare for the High Holy Days. As we learn how best to balance the needs and wishes of our community members responsibly and equitably, we will make adjustments. Fewer people in the building over the summer will help to determine how to manage larger groups on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

Thank you for your understanding and patience and we continue to adapt these policies and procedures.
