Safety procedures and guidelines

Our Safety Protocols for the High Holidays will continue to be reviewed and updated based on new information available from local health officials and our team of medical experts. Seating during services is limited, therefore, registration is imperative so that we can monitor how many people will be able to attend.

Anyone who is not yet comfortable attending, should please remain at home and connect with G‑d there. The following safety measures are meant only as a guide for proper safety measures to be enforced for those who wish to pray in-person as a community.

Please note: Our Safety Protocols for the High Holidays will continue to be reviewed and updated based on new information available from local health officials and our team of medical experts.

We will take all necessary precautions to keep everyone safe including sanitizing the space before and after use, shortening the duration of the services and other changes to procedure.

Please note the following guidelines so we can keep each other safe and healthy:

  • If you are sick stay home. (And have a speedy recovery)
  • If you have been exposed to someone who is a possible COVID-19 carrier you must stay home
  • If you have any underlying health issues that put you at greater risk (like obesity, heart disease, liver disease, diabetes, immunocompromised, respiratory issues, etc.), please stay home.
  • Six-foot distancing will be respected at all times (same households excepted)
  • Attendees are encouraged to wear their own Yarmulka & Talis.

  • Do not congregate upon entering or exiting Synagogue.
  • Attendees must be required to leave as soon as the service or ceremony has concluded. No continued gathering shall be permitted.
  • There will be no food or drink. (We will have bottled water available, there may be prepackaged kiddushes)

***Please understand that since the Mitzvah of safeguarding our health and each others' health must come first, we will have to enforce these rules. We ask that you wait until the guidelines are relaxed if you might find them difficult to adhere to. Likewise, anyone who is at higher-risk is advised to stay home or speak with your doctor before attending.
