Covid-19 Safety

COVID-19 Policy Update

  • Entry into the building during the High Holy Days will be restricted to fully vaccinated, masked individuals. Children under twelve will not be permitted in our main sanctuary services.
  • Masks, fully covering the mouth and nose, will be required for the entire time you are inside the building.
  • Attendance will be limited at each service to allow for some distance between seats.
  • Tents will be erected on our side yard for family/tot services, where masks will also be required (and cool, comfortable clothes will be encouraged).
  • We will show our main sanctuary services outside for anyone who prefers that option.
  • Please remember, if you or someone in your family does not feel well, please stay home and join us virtually.

Reciprocity

In light of the most recent recommendations from the CDC, the rise of cases in Hillsborough County, and under the advisement of our COVID task force, we are not administering any tickets of reciprocity this year. All guests are welcome to stream our services online or watch on public access television.

We will continue to assess our policies as data for our area changes, and as we prepare for High Holy Day services, we remain committed to ensuring a meaningful experience whether you are joining us in the sanctuary or from home.
