Chukkat - The Ritual Law

Our Values

Temple Kehillat Chaim, which means Community of Life, is a Reform Jewish congregation located in Historic Roswell. 

We are INCLUSIVE

We are a diverse congregation. We reflect the larger community, and our members include interfaith families, LGTBQ+ people, people of color, Jews-by-Choice, Jews who grew up in every movement or no movement and more.  Everyone is welcome and respected.  

We are INTIMATE

Our small congregation means that you won't be lost in the crowd.  TKC is a wonderful place to find community and make new friends. 

We are INNOVATIVE

We believe in Reform Jewish values, prize creativity, and love new ideas and trying out new things.  

TKC Reopening - Next Steps

Temple Kehillat Chaim’s Board of Trustees  met with our Special Coronavirus Task Force, and has approved resolutions enabling the following new rules and guidelines regarding in-person worship services and other activities in our buildings to become effective immediately.

 

       For Shabbat worship services:

  • We will have the choice each week to attend services in-person at TKC or over Zoom. (For those attending over Zoom, the link will be included in the weekly emails from the office).

  • Face masks are now optional for those people attending in-person who provide proof of vaccination in advance to the office or at the door upon arrival prior to the service.

  • For those people who do not wish or are unable to provide proof of vaccination, they will continue to be required to always wear a mask while inside the building. (However, only unvaccinated individuals who are old enough to wear a mask will be subject to this mask requirement.)

  • For Friday evening Shabbat services, capacity in the sanctuary will be limited to a maximum of 50 people. For Saturday morning B’nai Mitzvah services, the attendance limitation will be 50 people or 16 households, whichever is less.

  • Those wishing to attend services in-person should please RSVP to Amy Arnold at office@kehillatchaim.org by Friday at 12 Noon each week.

  • We will continue to pre-assign seats in the sanctuary to assist with social distancing, so when you RSVP, please include the names of all people for whom you are reserving seats and, if relevant, the names of those people you would like to sit with.

  • Optional prayer books will now be available for those attending in-person who wish to use them, and we will also continue to project the service onto a screen in the sanctuary.

  • Optional kippot will be available for those who wish to use them.

  • After each Friday evening service, there will be an outdoor oneg, weather-permitting.

  • We will not be strictly enforcing social distancing during services, but please be respectful that some people still prefer six feet of separation.

  • For Groups and Meetings:

  •  TKC-affiliated adult auxiliary groups and committees (Sisterhood, Brotherhood, etc.) may now meet inside the building with 50 or less people in attendance and without mask restrictions, unless stricter restrictions are imposed by the leadership of the auxiliary group or committee.

  • Private groups of 50 people or less (TKC members or non-members) may now rent and use our facilities without mask restrictions imposed by TKC.
