TKC High Holy Days 2021

Temple Kehillat Chaim High Holy Day Services 2021

 

At a recent meeting of TKC’s Special Coronavirus Response Task Force, we agreed to several important changes to our pandemic response policies. The changes were made in part so that as many of us as possible can safely worship together in person this year for the High Holy Days!

 

Effective immediately, whenever we expect to have more than 50 people attending worship services or other TKC events in person, such as during the High Holy Days, social distancing will not be possible, and as a result, all attendees, whether vaccinated or not, will be required to wear a mask while inside the building. Those of us who are fully vaccinated and participating in a service will be able to remove our mask while on the bimah.

 

The Task Force implemented this revised policy for the High Holy Days in order to mitigate the risks caused by the elimination of the social distancing requirements and the resulting higher density of people who will be sitting very close together in the sanctuary. The Task Force concluded that these updated precautions are particularly important given the facts that some members are still ineligible for vaccination and more highly contagious variants are continuing to circulate. 

 

We will also once again offer a livestream option for anyone who prefers to worship online for the High Holy Days. We will loan prayerbooks to those members as we did last year. It is recommended that anyone who has a physical condition or is taking medications that weakens their immune system should talk to their healthcare provider about their plans for the High Holy Days. They may need to take additional precautions to prevent COVID-19. You can read more here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/prevention.html.

 

Please note that this situation remains very fluid, and we may need to further adjust these policies at any time. The best thing every member can do to help us have safe High Holy Days services is to become fully vaccinated as soon as eligible!

 

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to do our best to enable as many of us as possible to safely gather together once again as a kehillah.

 

Sincerely,

 

 

Alan Abrams, President                          Rabbi Jason Holtz
