Important – “Purple Badge” Guidelines for Services in the Synagogue:
Please note: the return to the synagogue is dependent on following the guidelines of the “Purple Badge” (Tav Sagol). Therefore, please read and be sure to follow all the instructions listed below for the sake of our health:
Only members of the congregation without a fever, not in quarantine, or not in proximity with a person in quarantine or ill with COVID-19 can enter the synagogue.
Sidurim, kipot, and talitot will not be handed out. Please bring your own siddur, kipah, and tallit from home.
Bottled water will not be placed at the entrance. Please bring your own personal water bottle.
All those entering Har-El are requested to wash their hands with soap and water before entering the sanctuary and to refrain from shaking hands or other physical contact. Likewise, we recommend bringing a bottle of alcohol gel for your personal use.
One should arrive wearing a protective mask, and to wear it at all times, including during the service.
The gate to the synagogue will be closed a half hour after the beginning of the service in order to prevent the entry of “walk-ins” and unknown guests. Apart from members of the congregation, entrance will not be permitted for non-members or groups. At the end of each service, a picture will be taken in the sanctuary with all those present.
In order to ease our preparations as we return to routine,
we ask that all those who plan on attending services for Shavuot and/or Shabbat to please send a Whatsapp to Cantor Evan by Thursday afternoon at 054-4742314 to confirm your attendance.
You can also receive from Cantor Evan the code for the synagogue gate (in case you are running late), as well as letting him know if you don’t have your own copy of the prayerbook.
