Please read on to see what the different services will look like and feel free to contact us with any questions you may have. 

INDOOR SERVICES (The "Main Service"):
During all indoor services we will:  
• Pray the entire service together as usual and enjoy the melodies from our Chazzan
• Hear a sermon from the Rabbi
• Require that masks be worn
• Set up the shul so that the chairs are distanced from each other according to health guidelines
• Have easy to follow services with English translated Prayer Book
• Still make it enjoyable, relevant and meaningful for Jews of all backgrounds

Please Note: Although the main services are quite lengthy you are welcome to sign up for these services and come for the entire service or come for only part of it.

OUTDOOR SERVICES (The "Essential Service"): 
During all outdoor services we will:  
• Pray select essential prayers together
• Hear words of explanation from the Rabbi
• Set up the Sukkah so that the chairs are distanced from each other and require masks in the sukkah proper

• Still make it enjoyable, relevant and meaningful for Jews of all backgrounds

Safety Protocols
We are taking the safety element as serious as possible.
Therefore:

  • We will have the entire shul sanitized between each service with our electrostatic sprayer.
  • We will have plastic shields built around the Rabbi's and Chazzan's Lectern and around the Bima where we read the Torah
  • Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the building.
  • All handles and faucets will be sanitized throughout the service by our cleaning staff
