In-Person Tips & Guidelines
- Masks are not required for vaccinated attendees,* although they are welcome to wear them. Unvaccinated attendees should wear masks for their own protection and should consider N95 masks.
- Unvaccinated attendees are requested to use at least 3 foot spacing (one open seat). For very well attended events, we will provide rows in the back with 3 foot spacing.
- At the end of services, a server (fully vaccinated ) may cut challah for participants, and glasses of wine and juice will be available.
- Every service will be available on Zoom as well. Our goal is to make services as inclusive as possible for those in-person and those at home, with opportunities for partnership by all.
- To ensure security, every time you connect to CEH virtual services, turn on your camera, and be sure your device displays your first and last name.
Friday Night & Saturday Morning Services
Sign up here to lead a portion of the service, a prayer or two, and/or read Torah or Haftarah.
- Non-members of Etz Hayim are welcome to participate, read, and lead.
- All ages, including pre-B’nai Mitzvah are welcome to sign up for anything. We’d love post-B’nai mitzvah to lead the Kaddishes and Barechu.
- If you want to participate but need more practice, help or coaching, contact Chief.Gabbai@etzhayim.net.
Thursday Morning Minyan
Have a yahrzeit or another occasion where you need a minyan? Add your initials here to request a Thursday morning minyan. When you make this request, a call is sent out to Minyan Makers to help to ensure a minyan.
If you would like to help lead or chant Torah on Thursday morning, or if you would like to be added to the list of Minyan Makers, please contact Chief.Gabbai@etzhayim.net.
