We are excitedly preparing to welcome the New Year together, both in-person and virtually. We will offer a variety of services to meet the different needs of many different age groups and demographics, both in our building and in a large, open-sided tent on our Temple parking lot.
As an expression of our Reform Jewish values – protecting our own health and the health of the most vulnerable – we are adopting the following Covid protocols for the High Holidays:
1.) Masks: We ask that all our visitors – regardless of age – wear masks for all High Holiday activities at Shaare Emeth, whether indoors or outdoors.
2.) Vaccinations: For indoor services, we ask that only Covid-vaccinated visitors enter the building. Outdoor services will have no vaccine requirement. We’ve intentionally programmed all of our family-oriented services to take place outdoors in our tent so that children of all ages can attend, regardless of vaccination status.
All policies are subject to change as new information and guidance becomes available.
