Thank you for being part of the BHBE community! We look forward to welcoming you to the building in a manner that is informed by public health guidance, protects members of our kehilla (community), and upholds the Jewish value of pikuah nefesh, saving a life.
Update for March 2021: Consistent with public health recommendations, we ask that everyone follow our guidelines regardless of vaccination status, prior infection, or recent negative test result.
- Register in advance to ensure we observe capacity limits and to facilitate contact tracing.
- A sign-up link will be made available several days before any event or Minyan. It will go out in email, and you can also call the synagogue office for assistance registering online.
- When registering online, you will be asked to self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms. If you have any symptoms, do not register for this or any other synagogue events until you are symptom-free. For questions about your symptoms or COVID-19 testing, contact your healthcare provider.
- If someone in your household has been sick, if you have recently traveled to an area with high COVID-19 rates, or if you have had other possible COVID-19 exposure, please do not register for this or other synagogue events until it has been more than 14 days since your possible exposure.
- For Minyanim, registration priority may be given to mourners or those observing a yahrzeit. You may be asked to attend on a different date to ensure we can safely include as many members as possible. We appreciate your cooperation. Please join us online for Minyan when not in person.
- If you develop any symptoms described on the self-screening questionnaire between when you register and the event date, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know so that someone else may participate instead. Even if you cannot contact the office in advance of the event, please stay home to protect others.
On the day of the event
- Screen yourself for symptoms again. If you answer yes to any screening questions, please stay home to protect others. You will be asked upon arrival at the event if you have self-screened for symptoms. If you have not screened yourself, you will be asked to do so. If you answer yes to any screening questions or refuse to participate in the health screening, you will be asked not to attend the event.
- Bring your mask and wear it at all times in the building and on the premises. If you arrive at an event without a mask, we may have some available and you will be asked to wear one. If you refuse to wear a mask (and do not have a condition that prevents you from wearing one), you may be asked not to attend the event.
- Use hand sanitizer or wash your hands for at least 20 seconds on entering the building.
- Maintain physical distance (6 feet or more) from others at all times.
- Please refrain from shaking hands, hugging, or kissing when greeting others.
- Please sit with those in your household but 6 feet from all others. Do not sit in the front section of seats.
- Bring your own kippah and tallit when attending services. No shared ones will be available.
