   Replay of Shabbos Shuva Drosha Rabbi Gottlieb Motzei Shabbos 9/26

                                              Yom Tov Update!

We will be having two Minyanim. Seats are extremely limited and we will be following social distancing and mask rules at both minyanim. You must be a pre-registered member to attend. 

Dear Members and Friends,

With the help of the Almighty, and thanks to the diligent efforts of so many in the shul, we were able to enjoy a beautiful and inspirational Rosh Hashanah davening, both indoors and in our spacious tent. As we prepare for Yom Kippur and the Yom Tov of Sukkos that follows, we are reminded of the need to remain vigilant, cautious, and careful both in the shul setting and in our day-to-day lives.

As you are aware, there has been a significant uptick in positive cases within the community. That uptick has accelerated in recent days, potentially due to travel between communities for Rosh Hashana and gatherings that have not complied with CDC recommended guidelines. While we urge every individual to consult their health-care professional for personal guidance on shul attendance and day-to-day life, below are some broad guidelines as well as some rules and expectations for our minyanim, both indoor and out.  

·At this point there is significant community transmission of the virus. Many people may be infected or have had recent close contact with an infected individual and may not even realize it. You should conduct yourself in all settings as though you and others around you may be carrying the virus. That means always wear a mask when in proximity to others, maintain proper social distance at all times, and regularly wash and/ or sanitize your hands

·As long as the weather permits, we will continue to hold our regular minyanim outdoors, as the outdoor environment adds an additional layer of safety. We will move indoors when the weather makes it unsafe to be outdoors. We believe that it is safe to maintain our minyanim with the protocols we have in place, but each individual should consult his or her doctor for personal guidance

·Be wise and deliberate in inviting guests for Sukkos and in visiting others over the yom tov. Consider carefully if grandchildren have been attending schools where there have been cases. Do not attend shuls in areas that are experiencing significant outbreaks, and do not attend shuls anywhere that are not following safety protocols, even if you are wearing a mask.

·The sukkah can provide a nice opportunity to invite company for “outdoor dining.” You can seat your company at a six-foot interval and enjoy a meal together. Keep masks handy and put them on when not eating and when going inside to wash or use the restroom

Guidelines for Shul Attendance

·Everyone who attends any of our minyanim, both indoors and outdoors, must wear a mask, properly affixed and covering the nose and mouth

·Everyone attending the minyan is expected to maintain a distance of six feet from others unless called up for an Aliyah and safely on the side of the Plexiglas barrier

·Only sit in your assigned seat

·Please remain by your seat. Do not walk around and do not stand at a distance from your seat.

·Do not gather in or around shul

·Bathrooms are available and are cleaned, but the use of the bathroom still increases your risk. Use them as little as necessary. Keep masks on and sanitize well upon exit

·Anyone subject to a mandatory quarantine, either due to travel out of state or exposure to a positive case, may not come to shul

·Anyone exhibiting symptoms of illness, such as sore throat, cough, runny nose etc. should not be at shul unless they are subject to seasonal allergies, the symptoms are mild, and they recognize the symptoms from prior years.

·Anyone with a household member displaying Covid-like symptoms should not come to shul

·Anyone attending an indoor simcha, attending shuls that are not following safety protocols, or patronizing local stores that are not following safety precautions should not attend shul for two full weeks from their last exposure

·Do not bring guests to shul who have had any of the exposures listed above

·Do not bring guests to shul who are not willing to fully comply with our protocols without having to be asked. Please discuss the protocols with any guests before bringing them to shul.

·When walking home with others after shul, keep masks on or make sure to keep proper distance. Do not assume that you or anyone else is virus-free

Our goal has been and continues to be to maintain a safe, healthy environment that allows all of our members the opportunity to daven B’tzibur without risk or fear. Your cooperation and support have made that possible until now, and your continued cooperation will help us to maintain that moving forward.

Wishing all of you an easy and meaningful fast and a healthy, happy, and wonderful year.
