Updates and Guidelines for Re-Opening In Person Services


         Rules for Attending In-person Services.
Rationale: Protecting the health and safety of our congregation.  Following the principle of Pikuach Nefesh (saving a life), the expectation is that everyone able to get vaccinated for Covid-19 will do so.  In addition, the following rules are proposed for in-person services at Congregation Brothers of Israel.


  • Universal Masking is essential.
  • Socially distanced and/or restricted seating will be in place.
  • Physical distance of at least 4 feet from others not from one’s own household/pod will be observed.
  • Upon entering the building, congregants will use hand sanitizer.
  • Instructions will be provided for those who are receiving an aliyah or other honor; some of these honors will be modified.
  • Congregants are asked to sing at a low volume.
  • Congregants are requested to bring their own kippah and tallit. There will be limited tallitot and kippot available. (A special box to quarantine borrowed tallitot and kippot will be designated).
  • Congregants are asked to bring their own prayer books to the service, in a labeled/identifiable bag.
  • Congregants are asked to bring their own water bottle; the water cooler will not be available.

Congregants are asked not to attend if:

  • They have tested positive for Covid-19 in the past two weeks.
  • They have had a fever or have felt feverish in the last 14 days.
  • They are having shortness of breath or other difficulties breathing.
  • They have a cough or a sore throat.
  • They have experienced a recent loss of taste or smell.
  • They have been in contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last two weeks.
  • They reside with or have been in recent contact with a person who is presently undergoing quarantine related to potential COVID-19 exposure.
