COVID Precautions and Protocols

We are all very excited to welcome people back into the synagogue for in-person services and other events this fall, and for the entire synagogue year, including Religious School and Small Wonders. 

Unfortunately, we still must deal with the virus, and need to keep all members of our community as safe as possible. For this reason we closely monitor the news coming out of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Our Board’s stated policy is that we will observe the guidelines and mandates from the CDC. We will state those rules which we have instituted on this page, and we will update that information as the situation evolves and changes.

As of August of 2021, these are the rules that all members of our community will be required to follow for events in our synagogue, including the High Holy Day services and events.

1. Everyone attending indoor programs and services at Temple Judea will be required to wear a mask. We encourage everyone to be vaccinated, but we will not be asking for proof of vaccinations. Instead, since we are all members of a community together, and because a core principle of our community is tikkun olam, we will all, together, wear masks.

2. Outdoor activities at Temple Judea will not require masks.

3. If you or someone in your household has COVID, please do not attend any events at the synagogue until you have been cleared by a medical professional. Also, please inform us so that we may notify the community who may have been in contact with you. We will keep your name strictly private.

As stated above, when the CDC guidelines change our protocols may be adjusted. We would note that the CDC guidelines are general, and that our local situation may require more, or less, stringent rules as we move through the year. Our goal will always be to keep our congregation as safe as possible, while still building a community promoting learning and friendships.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

For Religious School students, please see this additional information on COVID Precautions and Protocols.
