Based on the current guidelines, we will be allowing only 40 people inside the Shul at a time. The first 35 to arrive can be in the sanctuary, and the last five will need to stay in the lobby. Once there are 40 people in the building, anyone else who comes will need to stand outside. These numbers may change based on updates from the City and the CDC, so please keep an eye on this page for updates.
If you are even the slightest bit ill, with any cold, cough, fever, body aches, diarrhea, loss of smell or taste, or are simply feeling under the weather, please do not attend. Err on the side of caution. By entering the Shul, you are actively affirming that you are completely healthy. Please also understand that you enter at your own risk.
When you get to Shul, there will be someone at the entrance with an infrared thermometer (contactless) to take your temperature. Anyone found to have a high temperature will be asked not to enter. We reserve the right to ask anybody not to come in or to leave if we feel there is a chance they are sick. You must wear a mask. There will be hand sanitizer available, and we encourage you to wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds if you touch any surface.
Studies have shown that groups of people singing together can spread the virus, so we ask that everyone other than the chazzan refrain from singing. You can read or hum quietly to yourself. Torah reading will look different than usual; please wait for instructions from the gabbai. When minyan is over, please do not linger. We know how much everyone has missed socializing, but unfortunately it is still not safe to do so.
