Please review the available slots below and click on the button to sign up.
Households over 5 people may use an additional email to sign up. Please, call the office (651) 452-2226 if you need assistance with signing up.
Doors will unlock at 8:45 am. We need a minyan in order to have in-person services.
- Singing is OK: "Congregational singing may occur if all participants wear face coverings."
Distancing: 6 feet apart
There is no babysitting, so children are expected to remain in the sanctuary with their families the entire time.
We will not be reading from the sefer Torah; we will continue to read from the Chumash and from people's homes (a "Safer" Torah service, so to speak).
During a week with a b'nai mitzvah, in-person services will only be open to the family. Please feel free to sign up and join us for a different Shabbat.
All other guidelines as stated in the initial email will still be in place.
Beginning on June 12th:
Sign-up will not be necessary; we will remove all capacity and distancing restrictions, in line with the recommendations of the MDH and the CDC. However, anyone over 16 who attends synagogue in person must be vaccinated, and masks will be required (this policy will be reassessed later in the summer by the reopening committee and the Board). All services will continue to be “simulcast” on Zoom until July 15th, after which Shabbat services will be accessible via livestreaming instead of Zoom.
Kabbalat Shabbat will resume each Friday night at the synagogue beginning on June 18th. Tefillot will be held outside (weather permitting), and masks will be optional. These services will not be available on Zoom.
