In order to use best practices to protect the health of all who attend services at Congregation Temple Beth-El, we are instituting a ‘ Masks, and Social distance’ requirement at the synagogue, effective immediately. This applies to all attendees, including those of us who are vaccinated.
The Delta Variant has caused a significant uptick in Covid-19 cases, including known cases amongst the vaccinated and young adults and teens. Not a lot of data or guidance is yet available for religious services in NYS, but we are opting to err on the safe side. Of course, each congregant must use their own judgement in deciding what is in their best interests of their own health and welfare in deciding whether to attend services, or any group function.
Attendees for kiddush, and lunch and learn session must be vaccinated. No exceptions. Hand disinfectants are available. Masks and Social Distancing are required in all parts of the synagogue.
If you do not feel well, or have been in contact with anyone who has tested positive, please do not attend.
Thank your for your cooperation and understanding.
Board of Directors,
Congregation Temple Beth-El
