COVID-19 Protocols

Our TRAC Committee (Temple Reopening Advisory Committee) made up of clergy, professional and lay leadership, and medical experts has continually monitored recommendations of the CDC and the state and local health departments and provided recommendations for Staff, members, and visitors regarding access to the building and appropriate safeguards.

For Shabbat and Holiday Services:

  • MASKS ARE REQUIRED for everyone of all ages attending in-person Services regardless of your vaccination status.
  • Vaccines are required for all who are eligible. Only children under 12 may attend if unvaccinated.
  • Vaccinated family members may, of course, sit with their unvaccinated children in the regular seats; we ask that you sit toward the back of the Sanctuary to help with physical distancing.
  • Prayer Books, kippot, and tallitot will be provided.

NOTE: Our driveway is now fully open so cars are able to drive up to the Main Temple entrance and use the traffic circle to return to the parking lot. As the lot has now been newly striped, please park only in the marked spaces. 

The main Ladies’ and Men’s bathrooms are now accessible. The Gender Neutral bathroom near the kitchen is also available.

We appreciate your understanding of the inconveniences caused by construction and our COVID protocols.. 

For all in-person activities:

  • Individuals who are eligible for vaccination (i.e., individuals 12 years of age and over) are required to be fully vaccinated to attend programs in our building. Children under 12 must wear a mask at all times and social distancing between families is recommended.
  • Everyone in the building must wear a mask regardless of vaccination status.
  • We are requiring proof of vaccination for those 12 and up, so everyone planning to attend in person events must register in advance and upload your vaccination card (call the office to find out how to do this).        

We are excited to be able to be together in person, and we are doing our best to meet both our spiritual needs and our physical safety needs. We know that the situation is far from ideal, and we ask for your flexibility your understanding, and your forgiveness if things don’t go as smoothly as we’d like. If you are concerned about your health, please consult with your physician and if you aren’t comfortable attending services or programs in-person, please consider our streaming options.
