Given the surge of Omicron-related COVID infections, we are implementing the following rules for physical attendance at synagogue services & events. These are effective immediately:
- Everyone over the age of 5 must provide us with proof of vaccination completed at least 2 weeks earlier.
- Everyone over the age of 16 must provide us with proof of booster vaccination completed at least 2 weeks earlier.
- Everyone must be masked except when eating or drinking.
We will continue to monitor the COVID situation & make further changes as needed.
To provide additional protection, we have installed a high capacity HEPA filtration unit and have made our bathrooms as contactless as possible. Door handles are equipped with anti-microbial coverings.
Disclaimer: The Boston Synagogue is following the guidelines suggested by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the City of Boston & the CDC. It also has developed guidelines specific to Jewish ritual practices & our synagogue.
However, it cannot guarantee that people attending services/events at the Synagogue will not come down with COVID. Thus all attendees assume full risk & will hold the Synagogue harmless for any infection they receive as a result of attending services/events.
