Covid-19 Protocols - effective September 13, 2021

All attendees at inside and outside events must be vaccinated, if eligible for the vaccine. There are no exceptions to this policy. We are not requiring vaccine cards. This is on the honor system.  

All attendees at outside events must be masked except when eating or drinking.  

All attendees at inside events must be masked, except when eating or drinking. 

No inside general congregational (open to the entire congregation) meals are allowed at this time. Outside congregational meals would only be considered with limited numbers and social distancing. 

Kiddushes, Onegs and other receptions tied to services are only individually packaged food, grab and go. Those present should be requested not to eat inside.  

Inside events, including receptions and meals -- whether congregation sponsored or privately sponsored -- are allowed, with number caps based on the specific room. These events require masking and social distancing for the safety of our members. The rooms and number caps are noted below: 

Rosenthal Auditorium – 100 
Halpern Hall – 75 
Gottlieb Auditorium – 50 
For outside events, the following locations are noted: 
Abraham Courtyard – 25 
Linden Courtyard - 75 

If the event number exceeds the cap number but is close, the Executive Director may allow for a higher number. Safety is the priority here. 

Meals may be served inside, although outside is preferred if possible.  The meals should be boxed or plated, no buffet, and allow for social distancing when eating. The numbers for these meals should be limited, based on room size as above. The synagogue general policy is that meals with approximately 25 or less are fine in any location, above that should be approved by the Executive Director. 

Events that plan to use indoor space must take reservations in advance, to maintain room limits. Late walk-ins and late reservations will not be allowed unless they are within these room/space limits. 

The morning minyan is held in Nickman Chapel, Friday evening services are held outside in the Linden Family Courtyard (weather permitting) and Saturday morning services in the David J. & Ruth A. Moskowitz Sanctuary.
