Community COVID Policies

In order to meet the spiritual needs of our community, including the immunocompromised and homebound, we offer hybrid versions (virtual and in person) of most of our usual in-person events, including Shabbat services, adult education classes, and committee meetings. While we do not currently require face masks, those who feel more comfortable wearing face masks are encouraged to do so. We ask that those who have tested positive for COVID or another contagious illness please refrain from attending events in-person until they have recovered and/or tested negative. Thank you for helping us to minimize the chances of a COVID outbreak in our community.
