COVID-19 Protocols

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


We continue to review our Covid policy to ensure it follows Westchester County and New York State, CDC and WHO guidelines. 

Please note this policy is subject to change.

Our synagogue prioritizes the health and safety of all. 

All entrants to the temple are required to be fully vaccinated to participate in temple programs and events. The temple is no longer checking vaccination status at the door. We encourage members and guests to wear a mask as their personal risks and tolerance guides them.  Masks are OPTIONAL at Temple Beth Abraham

Regardless of vaccination and symptom status, if you have had a direct exposure to someone with COVID-19 within the last 5 days, please do not attend synagogue or synagogue events. 

Members and guests may participate in programs and events five (5) days after the onset of symptoms, or five (5) days after the date of the positive test if symptoms are improving and they have not had a fever for 24 hours (without antipyretic medications such as aspirin or Tylenol). Masks are required for participants who tested positive for ten (10) days after their last positive test.

Please understand that we cannot guarantee an environment free from possible exposure to COVID-19, nor can we eliminate the risk of any individual being infected with the virus at a synagogue event. Please consult your doctor to determine if attending in person events is safe for you and your unique health needs. 

All our services are available to our members via live stream, Zoom and/or on our Facebook page.
