Safety procedures and guidelines

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

 

Procedures we will be enacting during outdoor services:

  1. Chairs will be been arranged to follow social distancing guidelines.
  2. Attendees are encouraged to wear their own Yarmulka & Talis.
  3. A Machzor will be supplied for you at your chair. The Machzors will be replaced and sanitized between services.
  4. Attendees will be asked to sanitize all hard surfaces in the restrooms before and after each use with materials provided in the bathrooms.
  5. 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.
  6. The Torah will not be brought around the synagogue. When one is called up to the Torah, you have the option to make the blessing from your seat.
  7. There is a limited number of participants. All participants are asked to register before the holidays. Space is limited to a first-come first-serve basis.
