As a preventative measure, for the foreseeable future, we are suspending in-person morning minyan meetings (Tuesdays and Fridays) @ 8:00. All prayer services (and many wonderful classes!) continue on the Zoom platform. At this time as well, we are not considering opening for in-person Shabbat services. We will provide an update after July 4th.
In-person minyan will be held on Tuesdays and Fridays at 8 a.m. and will be concurrently Zoomed. All other minyanim and Shabbat services will continue to be held on Zoom and live streamed.
Morning minyan will be held in the social hall (to facilitate social distancing) and will have a capacity of 20 live participants. All other parts of the building (with the exception of the bathrooms by the social hall) will be closed. Participants are expected to follow our protocols (listed below).
In this unprecedented time (sh’at had’chak), we will count a minyan in a combination of those physically present, and those whose faces are seen on screen.
Protocols to Follow:
– Face masks will be required to be worn the entire time in the building. Proximate awareness will also be practiced.
– We will have one designated entrance and one exit that will be clearly labeled
– Please refrain from walking around the building – bathrooms by the social hall will be open for use
– BYOB “Prayer Gear” (tallit, tefillin, siddur, kippah)
– Please stay home if you or a household member is not feeling well. Please feel free to make use of our remote virtual capabilities
– Personal belongings shall not be left unattended at any time
– There will be hand sanitizer available in the building, including the entrance and exit points
– With guidance from health authorities, we may amend these protocols as needed
