A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT
Many congregants have expressed concerns about coming to temple for the High Holy Days this year without social distancing, even though the CDC has not issued any recommendation in that regard. In response to those concerns, we will have sections with social distancing of approximately 6’ as follows: in the sanctuary, in the pews on the two far sides only, by allowing seating only in every other row; and in the entire ballroom.
Our best estimate is that this will allow a capacity of around 240, which we believe should be more than sufficient for every service except possibly Yizkor. As to Yizkor, we will either have it the same way or it will be streamed only. That decision will be made as soon as possible after the conclusion of all RH services, when we see what kind of attendance we actually get.
Thank you for your understanding.
Neil A. Miller
