COVID-19 Policy

One of the highest Jewish values is the preservation of life. Throughout the COVID pandemic, we have prioritized pikuach nefesh (preservation of human life) in deciding when and how we gather. Our Medical Advisory Group reviews the data and trends.  Our policies are informed by these reviews. 

Update - 8/16/2023:

Our medical advisory group has met to discuss COVID safety at Beth Israel during our High Holiday services. Please see below for a summary of our plans.

  • We strongly recommend wearing a mask during services, but masks are not required.
  • There will be a mask-required seating area in the sanctuary
  • We strongly recommend immunization against COVID-19, but immunization proof is not required.
  • If you do not feel well (cold symptoms or fever), DO NOT COME to services!

On behalf of our BI medical advisory group. wishing all of you a healthy, happy High Holiday period and New Year 5784!
