COVID PROTOCOLS

Masks: Sanctuary Services are now mask-mask optional. Those who wish to mask and be physically separate from anyone unmasked can sit in the designated mask-mandatory section of the Sanctuary. Those who wish to mask themselves but don’t mind sitting near others who are unmasked can sit anywhere. Those who wish to unmask can sit anywhere except the designated mask-mandatory zone.  Please see Rabbi Kalmanofsky’s letter for a full explanation of our updated policy on masking,

Attendance: We are not requiring pre-registration to attend services. There is no maximum attendance limit. However, please do not attend if you have any symptoms of illness.

Vaccination: Attendees should have received all vaccines for which they are eligible, including booster shots.

Proof of Vaccination: We are no longer requiring that attendees provide proof of vaccination. We are employing the “honor system,” and trust that our community will continue to guard the health of others, as we have learned to do over the past two years. 

Social Distancing: The Sanctuary pews near the windows and in the balcony are available for any attendees who would like to maintain social distance.

Ventilation: Windows will be open in the davvening spaces.

Shabbat services will remain accessible via the Livestream on the AnscheChesed.org website and via the Zoom link at AnscheChesed.org/ShabbatService.

Thank you to our staff, officers, and especially our medical advisors for helping us develop these policies, which necessarily will evolve as conditions change.
