To take the proper and responsible precautions, we will be implementing the following guidelines: 

  • Please bring and wear your own kippa (and talit if possible).
  • Services will be held outdoors (under an open tent in the back of the Chabad Jewish Center).
  • Use hand sanitizer as you enter (will be provided). 
  • Masks will be worn during services (masks will be provided).
  • We will be maintaining social distancing (seats will be separated from each other, except for members of the same family).
  • The Torah will not go around to be touched or kissed.
  • Aliyos will be given from your seat, without approaching the bima.
  • Please leave your machzor on your seat when done, so they could be wiped down after services.
  • There will be no kiddush luncheon after services (pre-packaged cookies and cold individual water bottles will be available).
  • At-risk individuals (based on age or immuno-compromised or others), or those who live together with them, should get approval from their doctor before coming.
  • If you do not feel well (or have had the following new symptoms within the last 14 days) you must stay at home. Symptoms include: a cough, shortness of breath, fever, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, or loss of taste or smell).

 

Due to Covid, those who are more comfortable joining a shorter service, can join for a 1 hour service.

Rosh Hashana: 10:30-11:30am
Yom Kippur: 10:45-11:45am

During the above mentioned hour, you will join in part of the Torah reading, selected prayers, children's program, the Rabbi's sermon, Shofar on the second day of Rosh Hashana, and yizkor memorial service on Yom Kippur.   

 

We will also be holding a Family Shofar blowing at the downing Park pavilion
5:30pm on Sunday, Sept 20

 

Wishing everyone a happy and safe holiday, and a Shana tova!
