Shabbat Evening Services 


For everyone’s safety in the sanctuary, the following policies are in place:
– Masks are mandatory for all attendees (including children ages 3 – 11)
– Sit in designated areas and please be mindful that some congregants may want to remain socially distanced 

Anyone experiencing possible symptoms of Covid (fever, coughing, etc.) may not enter the building.

We appreciate that not everyone is comfortable or able to return to in-person worship yet. Therefore we will continue to make our Shabbat services in the sanctuary available for people to enjoy from their homes via online live streaming.
