COVID-19 Safe Reopening Plan

We are excited to share with you our plans for reopening the building for Shabbat morning services beginning Saturday, June 5, 2021! Below, you will find our guidelines ensuring that our gathering experience is safe, meaningful, and comfortable. We need everybody to be mindful and flexible as this is new to all of us so adjustments and changes will be made as we go.

Plan Highlights

All members and guests are welcome!

On June 2 the board approved for us to gather in the synagogue masks are optional for vaccinated people and masks/distancing required for unvaccinated people age 2+.  It is an act of care for our congregants for them to know what to expect when they enter the building- no matter their vaccination status. 

Currently, morning minyan services are on Fridays in person (8 am), and on Zoom and Facebook, Shabbat morning and Thursday/Sunday morning services are in person; other services are virtual for now. Please check the News and Schmooze weekly e-newsletter for updated information on our service schedule as well as checking our website.

It is up to the individual to distance as they feel comfortable.
