Current Governmental regulations (regarding ‘groups of more than 6’) specifically exempt places of worship from this restriction. “Limits for communal worship should be decided on the basis of the capacity of the place of worship following an assessment of risk.”
See here for more. The Government minimum standards are ‘1m+’. We are operating at ‘2m+’ with additional measures including compulsory mask-wearing and hand sanitation, one-way systems, ventilation, no shared use of ritual objects etc. Sadly, no kiddush!
Our full protocols for attendance are here.
To see our full risk assessment, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are fully committed to doing everything we can to create a safe and responsible way for those who feel able to attend to do so safely. Government advice on those who should not attend, of course, stands. And, of course, despite our efforts, we cannot guarantee safety.
We warmly welcome attendance at our in-building services which have a very special quality at this time. Following a trial period we no longer require people to pre-register to attend although capacity is limited so that we remain Covid compliant. For security reasons we have to password protect our full timetable of in-building services. But we do welcome guests.
Please contact email@example.com if you are a member and need the password or if you are a guest wishing to attend, please email us before 5pm the previous Thursday of your intention to join us and confirm which service you would like to attend.
We will be operating on a first come first served basis other than for our members with yahrzeits where priority will be given. Once we have reached capacity we will be unable to allow further people to join that service.
If you can’t come to the building, we’ve on-line opportunities to connect. Click here for more.
