Service Participation Guidelines and Sign Up

Please review the following guidelines and protocols for both in-person and outdoor 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.
Outdoor-Only Service Protocols:
  • You can either sit in your car or stand right next to your car
  • You must wear a mask if you choose to stand next to your car
  • You must bring your own siddur and tallit
  • You may not enter the building for any reason. There will be no bathroom access.
  • In case of inclement weather, services will move indoors, and indoor service protocols will be implemented.
Indoor 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 
• 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:
• Exposure to anyone who has tested positive within the last 14 days or who is awaiting test results for COVID-19  
• Travel out of state to the following high-risk states within the last 14 days: Florida, Texas, Arizona, Alabama, South Carolina, Mississippi, Nebraska, Idaho
• Attendance at a gathering where masking and social distancing were 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.
