Update on Reopening

Dear TBT Congregants:

We are pleased to share that we will be re-opening the synagogue for limited in-person Shabbat services beginning on February 26-27.  We will have a maximum of 15 people at each service on Shabbat.  We will continue to livestream Shabbat services.  Daily services will continue to be on Zoom only. 

Please remember - we continue to face a public health crisis.  The health and safety of our congregants – collectively and individually – remains our top priority.

Our re-opening task force recently met and following the Federal, State and County guidelines, and working in close consultation with our medical professionals actively involved in the Task Force, we are making some further changes in our policies and procedures which will be strictly enforced:

  1. We will continue to encourage those most vulnerable to join us on Zoom during the week and on livestream for Shabbat.  We acknowledge that those that have received their second vaccine dose at least a week prior are less vulnerable.
  2. If you wish to attend a service in person, you will be required to make a reservation 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.
  3. By making a reservation, you will be certifying not only that you feel healthy and do not have symptoms yourself, but also that you have not been close to anyone outside your home who failed to follow mask and social distancing guidelines. If you have traveled outside the state within the last 14 days, you may not attend unless you have taken and received a negative Covid-19 test.
  4. Attendees must arrive no more than 10 minutes before services and no later than 15 minutes after the start, as the doors will be locked.  Please do not come if you do not have a reservation, as you will not be allowed into the building.
  5. When you come into the building, please use the hand sanitizing station which is available at the synagogue entrance.
  6. We will require more masking.  Anyone attending must wear a KN95 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) - even if you have already been vaccinated against Covid.
  7. Pew seating is laid out to provide for social distancing. Aliyot will be chanted from your seats, and attendees should remain in place throughout the service.
  8. After services, exit the building, depositing used prayer books at the designated location. Continue wearing your masks until you leave the building.

If you are unable to follow these rules, you will be asked politely to leave.

 

Please understand the synagogue’s protocols will continue to change as circumstances warrant.  This is about more than just your health; it’s about your synagogue and your fellow congregants’ ability to worship together for those who want to do so. When we re-open, your compliance with these procedures will help keep you safe and those around you, including your family and friends.

Thank you for your cooperation.
