Covid-19 Protocol UPDATE 3/5/22 – Dear Congregants, the health, safety and welfare of all our congregants remains of paramount importance. We believe in-person services provide continuity for our community as well as meeting religious, spiritual and faith needs of our members. We follow these updated protocols:  *We lifted the masking requirement. We are not requiring them in the shul building. However, we ask you to wear masks while moving around and socializing.  *We are not requiring vaccinations to enter the building.

We continue to:   *Observe and encourage social distancing.  *Require everyone to sign in for contact tracing. 

If you are not feeling well, have experienced any covid symptoms, or have had a covid exposure please refrain from coming to in-person services and join us virtually. Shabbat services (and archives) continue to be streamed here on our site.

Our welcoming and giving community is a Reform congregation, committed to
social justice, ongoing learning, vibrant spirituality, diversity and the State of Israel.
5000 years of History – More than 160 years of Service.
