COVID-19 Updates

TBE COVID-19 POLICIES (Updated September 23, 2022)

We continue to monitor the local COVID-19 realities.  Services are also available via Livestream for those who prefer to access from home.  

All who attend in person must adhere to Temple Beth El’s COVID-19 Policies. These policies will be evaluated on an ongoing basis and may change. 

We hope that you will take comfort in knowing that we remain fully committed to the Jewish principles that we articulated early in the pandemic. Additionally, we continue to be guided by our COVID-Task Force and medical advisors, whose counsel prioritizes the health and safety of Temple Beth El’s members, staff, and guests. We also appreciate your patience as we continue to re-build the capacity to operate our building and develop multi-access (online and in-person) services and programming in new ways. We hope you will take advantage of the opportunity to join us in person or online, and we look forward to seeing you again soon at our spiritual home.
