Thank you for being part of the BHBE community! We are excited to welcome you to BHBE in a manner that is informed by public health guidance, protects members of our kehilla (community), and upholds the Jewish value of pikuah nefesh, or saving a life.
We follow a “masks encouraged” policy that allows members and guests to exercise their own discretion when it comes to wearing masks. Please note that mask wearing not only remains very welcome, but is encouraged for a wide variety of congregants. Those who are older, have underlying health conditions, are immunocompromised, have high-risk or unvaccinated household members, or who just do not want to get sick may wish to remain masked. We are a diverse community, with a variety of views on masking, and we appreciate your continued kindness towards individuals who may make different choices.
Kiddush will be set up for eating and socializing at tables after services. Children and adults alike are welcome at kiddush.
If you have any questions, please reach out to Michael Kahn at email@example.com.
