Dear Mishpachah [Family]:
Praise Adonai! We can begin only Shabbat service this coming May 16th at the normal time of 10:30 AM. NO ONEG or afternoon studies at this time. We will abide by the 6 ft. distancing in our seating, and hand sanitizer will be at the front door. Families that have stayed together, can sit together. Masks are strongly encouraged, and we will have some available if you need one. People with COPD, asthma or other breathing problems should only wear a mask for 20 minutes at a time. Fabric masks should be worn for 2 hours than washed to kill your germs. Wearing a fabric mask does not harm the immune system in healthy individuals. Hand washing and not touching your face is another tool used to combat the spread of this virus. Our building is clean and will be cleaned after our service. Let’s all be diligent during this time. Stay safe and use common sense for we are the generation with the gray hair.
