Services will be appropriately distanced, and all who attend will be required to wear a mask. The maximum number of attendees is 40. The Shabbat morning services will begin at 9:30 a.m. in the Hendeles Chapel. There will also be a Back Minyan service in the Dennis Museum. Doors will be open at 9:00 a.m.  Please check the website calendar for Friday evening service times. Maximum attendance will be 36 people in the Hendeles Chapel and 18 people in the Back Minyan.

The Reopening Taskforce, with input from medical professionals and public health authorities, has compiled and presented to the Board a Reopening Manual outlining policies and procedures to help ensure that we move forward safely and cautiously.

On behalf of the entire Reopening Taskforce, I would like to thank you for your patience, your support and your suggestions as we've tackled the issues inherent in opening a synagogue as vibrant and busy as Beth Tzedec. 

Although the past few months have been difficult for all of us, we have risen to the occasion in transitioning our programming to Zoom, Facebook, and YouTube. We have had amazing engagement online, and we appreciate your patience as we navigate a new environment.
