Up to 100 Participants Now Allowed At Services

On Monday, March 15, 2021 Beth El’s Medical Task Force approved a decision to allow up to 100 participants at services, starting this Shabbat.  Citing the diminishing positivity rate and the increasing number of vaccinations, the task force wholeheartedly endorsed the ability for a larger number of  people to safely gather to celebrate Shabbat and the upcoming holiday of Passover at Beth El. We have maintained, and will continue to maintain, the important safety guidelines of medical screening, temperature checks, wearing masks, physical distancing and of signing up in advance. As before, our services will take place in the Field Family Sanctuary, which is currently opened to include the Paset Lounge and Blumberg Auditorium, creating ample space and excellent ventilation. The combined seating of the Field Family Sanctuary, Paset Lounge and Blumberg Auditorium is over 1800.  Please click here to sign up for Shabbat and Holiday services.  We would love to see you there!  Any questions, please be in touch with Jeff Baden at jbaden@nssbethel.org

We currently hold daily minyan only on Monday and Thursday mornings at 7:30 am when the Torah is read, something that cannot be done virtually.  Please note that ALL services will continue to be livestreamed. 

As you know, the most essential value we hold dear in Judaism is that of Pikuah Nefesh, the preservation of life. Let’s all work together to keep each other safe.
