Beth Israel davening this Shabbat will be indoors, with a few outdoor men’s seats available,
weather permitting. Men’s attendance will be capped at 11 pods indoors. Outside seating will
also be very limited. Women’s indoor attendance will be capped at 3. Advance sign up
required. The safety and wellbeing of our membership has been and will continue to be of
paramount importance. With that in mind, the Sanctuary has been reconfigured to increase
distancing although the number of attendees will be extremely limited. There will be UV- Hepa
filtration units spread throughout the sanctuary. We are working to make our Shul as safe as
reasonably possible. Please let us know if you can join us inside. Although we have very
limited seating, we are trying to accommodate all our members.
You will need to sign up to attend any of the Minyanim. Unless you sign up, you may not
be permitted inside the sanctuary.
Safe Social Distancing is Mandatory – All attendees must wear properly fitted masks. Communal
singing will be eliminated. Services will move at a quicker pace than what we have become
accustomed to. Initially the Bal Koreh will take all the aliyot. Davening will start at Nishmat on

Due to the changes in weather, BETH ISRAEL will be
forced to move inside in the coming weeks. The safety
and wellbeing of our membership has been and will
continue to be our paramount goal. With that in mind,
the Sanctuary has been reconfigured to maintain safe
distancing although the number of attendees will be
extremely limited. There will be Hepa filtration units

spread throughout the sanctuary.

We are working to make our Shul as safe as possible.
Once we move inside, you will need to sign up to
attend any of the Minyanim. Unless you sign up, you
will not be permitted inside the sanctuary.
Safe Social Distancing is Mandatory – All attendees
must wear properly fitted masks. Communal singing
will be extremely limited. Services will move at a
quicker pace than what we have become accustomed
to. The safety of our attendees is vital. We must work
together to make our Shul a cohesive environment
where tephila, torah, kavanah and safety coexist.
