We are excited to announce that we will be holding in person High Holiday Services this year with the same ENERGY, just with necessary adjustments.
We will be creating a meaningful, safe environment so that we can pray as a community.
This year, more than ever, we need our prayers to be meaningful and to recharge our connection to G-d and the Torah.
Here’s our guidelines of how we can ensure that this is accomplished:
Prayer services will be held indoor/outdoor with social distancing and masks observed. Outdoor services will take place in an open walled tent. Our expectation is that unfortunately there will be smaller crowds than usual, though this will allow for comfortable distancing in our seating arrangements. Please RSVP so we can ensure proper seating.
We will be limiting physical interaction, so certain functions of our Shul (Torah procession, Aliyahs etc.) will be altered for safety.
On Jewish Holidays & Shabbat we refrain from the use of electronic technology, as is prohibited by the Torah. Therefore we will not be streaming or using Zoom for any High Holiday services. Those who wish to stay at home, please contact Rabbi Prus for information on how to pray properly on these holy days, he is glad to assist you!
By attending High Holiday services, you are confirming that you have not been exposed to anyone with Covid-19 in the previous 14 days and are in good health as per all appropriate health regulations.
Services are free. All our welcome.
Suggested donations are the same as every year. Please consider a larger donation in order to ensure our community’s success through this trying time. Even if you cannot attend, your donation is very much appreciated. As always no one will be turned away due to lack of funds.
