Welcome Back! In-Person Shabbat Services

We are excited to be open on Shabbat mornings to anyone who would like to join us. We are no longer requiring that you register. We will continue to live-stream Shabbat morning services here as well. Our services begin at 10:30 AM.

We encourage everyone who is eligible to get vaccinated. However, we are not requiring vaccination. Please consider your comfort level in attending in person. We also ask that everyone attending comply with the following guidelines:

  • Everyone must wear a face covering inside the building; and
  • Attendees who are not part of the same immediate household must be seated at least six feet apart.

Furthermore, if any of the following conditions apply to you on Shabbat, we ask that you stay home and enjoy our live-streamed service:

  • You have been in close contact with a person who has a confirmed case of COVID-19;
  • You have recently tested positive for COVID-19; or
  • You have a fever, a new loss of taste or smell, vomiting, diarrhea, a cough, shortness of breath or sore throat.

Blessed are You, Source of All Life, Who enlivens us, sustains us, and has given us the strength to reach this moment.


Support and Resources for Our Community

As we face challenges of distance and illness due to COVID-19, we want to be sure to meet the needs that may arise for our community members. Please take a moment to complete this form if a need arises or if you feel you can support others needs. Responses are confidential.

In addition, you can find many more resources for mental health, emergency services, and parent coaching here.

If you need anything at all, please be in touch with Rabbi Berman at rabbiberman@reyim.org and Claire Gerstein Chair of our Chesed Committee, at cgerstein@verizon.net.
