REGISTRATION AND HEALTH AND SAFETY - We are working diligently to keep everyone as safe as possible, and know how many are attending for the physical set up. As such, registration for those attending in person, which includes an agreement to our health and safety protocols, is required each week by 2:00 pm on Friday. Click here to register.
VACCINATION AND MASKS - All individuals eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine must be fully vaccinated to attend in-person events at Temple Shalom. Based on the rising rates of transmission, we are encouraging participants to wear masks while at programs and services Temple Shalom. Masks will be available at the registration table. If you need to use the restroom indoors, you must be masked regardless of vaccination status.
PHYSICAL CONTACT AND DISTANCING - Some of us want hugs and handshakes, and some of us look forward to saying Shabbat Shalom from a distance. Please take a bracelet from the welcome table when you arrive in-person to indicate "I’m so glad to see you from a distance," or "You can ask me for a hug/handshake." Additionally, when you register you can indicate if you would like distanced or non-distanced seating during service.
