High Holy Day Reservations 2020-5781



We are grateful that we can once again pray together. However, due to the coronavirus, we require adherence to the following restrictions.

Attendees are required to wear a mask over their mouth and nose the entire time they are attending either indoor or outdoor services. This is not a personal decision; the mask is worn to protect others from infection, and non-compliance puts at risk everyone else at the minyan.

We advise you to bring your own Machzor if possible. has an all-in-one Koren Machzorfor an unbeatable price of $35.

All seats will be separated by at least six feet distance.

Attendees are required to maintain social distancing upon entry and exit. Please come 10 minutes early, as it will take time for people to pass through security and get to their service with limited elevator capacity. Similarly, we will be asking people to leave in an orderly fashion.

As per CDC guidelines, we discourage people over 65 from attending without asking their doctor first. In addition, anyone with health conditions such as diabetes, lung disease, asthma, heart disease, and weakened immune system should not attend. If you have any questions, please consult your doctor before coming. 

Services are open to adults and children ages 12 and over.
