This is our Sign-Up for Shabbat Minyan which will still be Live-Streamed and abbreviated in duration. If we end up with 10 (a Minyan) present, then we will take the Torah out of the Ark, and there will be 3 Aliyot from where you are seated (not on the Bimah), 3 short sections of the Parashah will be read. We will limit it to 18 (Chai), and we reserve the right to revisit this number as is necessary. We do have a limited supply of disposable masks and gloves as well as hand-sanitizer.

Here’s How To Attend

  • You Must be 100% Healthy. Please take your temperature before coming.
  • You Must wear a Mask while in the building.
  • You Must maintain the 7ft. spacing in the Sanctuary unless you are family and/or you live together. 
  • It is advised that you bring and use your own Prayer Book and Prayer Shawl (Siddur and Tallit), or you can use your E-Device to access the On-Line Siddur.
    • Please Text/Call/Email the rabbi if you agree with these requirements and he will add you to the list and tell you what Number you are. Once we get to 18, he will compile a Waiting-List, and inform you of what number you are beyond the 18. If you are on the Waiting-List, he will notify you, only if there’s a cancellation before Shabbat begins.

We shall evaluate how this goes (after each Shabbat), and learn how to improve as we move forward toward the next Shabbat and Holidays. 
**THANK YOU to everyone for your patience and support as we continue to run the Synagogue Office remotely during this time. Please be aware that due to safety measures both in and out of our control, as well as an increase in demand during this time, all processes such as check deposits, donation acknowledgements, and phone communication can be delayed as we try to meet all urgent and non-urgent needs of our congregation.**
