 HIGH HOLIDAY SERVICES 2021/5782 
 
We are grateful to be able to welcome our congregation back to our sanctuary for in-person high holiday services.

Our holiday services are structured this year in such a way as to provide both safety and comfort, to the best of our ability, as we make our way out of the COVID pandemic.  Due to our reduced limited maximum capacity, we are asking that you RSVP for the service(s) you plan to attend.  Registrations for each service will be accepted on a first-come first-served basis and will close when we have reached capacity.

Based on the current situation regarding COVID and the uptick in cases due to the spread of the Delta variant, we are asking all those ages 12 and older to provide proof of COVID vaccination.  In addition, we will require masks to be worn at all services.

Please note: our COVID protocols are subject to change at any time.
