Update on Reopening

Excerpts from the May letter on reopening:

We will continue to request reservations in advance online, through our website (SignUp Genius). Shabbat reservations must be made by 2 p.m. on Friday. If you cannot make the reservation for yourself, you may call the office at 838-3232 and ask to have one made for you.  However, if you are fully vaccinated (two weeks post second shot of Pfizer or Moderna or four weeks post Johnson & Johnson), you may show proof of vaccination (e.g. Excelsior Pass or vaccination card) and you will be added to a list of vaccinated members.  Those individuals who have presented proof of vaccination in advance or upon arrival may attend services without making an online reservation (although reservations are still encouraged so that we know whether we will have a minyan).  We will have a maximum of 20 reservations at each service on Shabbat.  This means we can have more than 20 including those on the vaccinated list.

We will continue to require masking.  Everyone must wear a KN95/N95 mask or double mask (a surgical mask covered by a cloth mask) over the mouth and nose the entire time in the building (no gaiters, bandanas or masks with a valve).  Children over the age of two must wear a mask and children over the age of nine must wear a double mask (or a KN95/N95 if one properly fits).
