Service Participation Guidelines and Sign Up

Please review the following guidelines and protocols for both shul services:
IMPORTANT UPDATE: Sign ups will only be required for Shabbat services from this point forward. No sign up will be required for weekday services.

Updated Protocols:
  • Weekday Shacharit will only take place inside.
  • For the time being (until it gets too cold), weekday Mincha and Maariv continue to be held outside, in the shul parking lot.  
  • All weekday Mincha and Maariv services will be livestreamed via Zoom. Shacharit services will not be livestreamed.
  • Kabbalat Shabbat and Shabbat services will take place in the Dahan Sanctuary.
  • Participants must sign up to join in-person Shabbat services — this allow us to monitor the size of each minyan and to communicate any last-minute changes.
  • Each participant must sign up for themselves — please do not sign up for any other participants.
Service Protocols:
We are pleased to see our members' compliance with our precautionary measures — i.e. maintaining social distance between each other when attending services in person and wearing masks properly. We have also installed the AtmosAir filtration system a couple of months ago — a state-of-the-art system that actively reduces airborne and surface contaminants, including viruses.

As we move into colder weather and flu season, please err on the side of caution with any symptoms and stay home. In compliance with CDC, Maryland State and Baltimore County guidelines, we will no longer take temperatures of those attending services in person at shul. Instead, we ask anyone who plans to attend service in person to monitor themselves at home before coming to shul for exposure or the symptoms listed below:
 
Symptoms: 
• A fever of 100 degrees Fahrenheit  
• A sore throat
• New onset of cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing or new loss of taste or smell
• Severe headache, especially with a fever 
• Cough or difficulty breathing (for those with chronic allergic/asthmatic cough, a change in their cough from baseline) 
• Diarrhea, vomiting or abdominal pain 
 
Exposure:
• Close contact (within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes) with anyone diagnosed with covid-19 or suspected of having covid-19, including someone awaiting test results
• Traveled to a "high risk state" (covid-19 test positivity rate above 10% or a case rate over 20 per 100,000 in the past 7 days) — view details here
• You or a close contact attended a gathering in the past 7 days where proper social distancing or the wearing of face masks was not followed

The following protocols are still in place:
• You must wear a mask that covers your mouth and nose the entire time you are in the building
• All social distancing guidelines must be observed
• Socializing is not permitted
• You must bring your own tallit
• Bathrooms will be open, but we encourage you to use the bathroom at home prior to services and refrain from using the shul bathrooms if possible

We will continue to livestream weekday Mincha/Maariv services via Zoom for those who cannot attend in person.
