Safety procedures and guidelines

In accordance with the CDC guidelines, we will be implementing a 6 foot distance between all congregants. 

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 will continue to be reviewed and updated based on new information available from local health officials and our team of medical experts.

 

Procedures we will be enacting during services:

  1. Masks must be worn at all times. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided to you at the entrance to the synagogue.
  2. A distance of at least 6 feet must be strictly maintained at all times. 
  3. Attendees are encouraged to wear their own Yarmulka & Talis.
  4. Individuals are asked not to attend if they feel even slightly unwell (coughing or sniffling) or if you have been exposed to someone who is a possible COVID-19 carrier. Likewise, if anyone has any underlying health issues that put them at greater risk (like obesity, heart disease, liver disease, diabetes, immunocompromised, respiratory issues, etc.), please stay home.
  5. When one is called up to the Torah, please make a blessing in front of the Torah without touching it, return to their seat and stand for the duration of the Aliyah and then return to the Torah for the final blessing.

 

***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.
