Covid-19 Update Beginning June 19, 2021:

    • Reservations are no longer required to attend services at Beth El, and there are no capacity limits.
    • Seating is at the discretion of the attendees and all seats in the main sanctuary will be available.
    • Seating in the Paset will remain separated during the summer for those who prefer to remain socially distant from other congregants.
    • The Plexiglas barriers on the reader’s podiums will be removed.
    • The use of gloves on the Bimah is optional.
    • Depending upon the weather, Kiddush may be moved indoors.   Food items will remain individually packaged, and may be “grab-and-go” for those not comfortable eating around others indoors.
    • The Torah will be marched throughout the congregation, but we ask that members refrain from kissing the Torah or shaking hands with those in the processional.
