Due to new Washington State recommendations, we are asking all attendees to wear masks indoors. Participants can still remain unmasked outdoors.
Covid Guidelines The summarized version of this stage of updates:
1. For now, services are remaining outdoors.
2. Vaccinated individuals do not need to wear masks outdoors (they must attest to vaccination status during sign up)
3. All kids can now attend services masked, sitting next to their parents. (non-mobile infants can still attend unmasked)
4. Unvaccinated people can take their masks off to eat and drink as long as they maintain 6 feet of distance.
5. Please stay 6 feet away from others if you are not vaccinated.
6. Parents don't need to stay 6 feet away from their kids.
We are excited to resume Shabbat Groups at Mercaz!
To start we'll be offering two different programs for children:
Tefilat Yeladim (ages 5-10): An abbreviated prayer service that contains songs, stories, and a word or activity about the Parasha of the week. Drop off.
Tot Shabbat (ages 18 months-4): Songs, prayers, and activities for younger children with a caregiver.
Each indoor room now has a HEPA filter and doors and windows will be open. All non-vaccinated people, over age 2, are required to wear masks and children will be required to stay 3 feet apart from each other. Per new recommendations, all individuals will need to wear masks indoors.
10:30 am - 12:00 (end of tefillah): Tefilat Yeladim in the sanctuary.
11:15 am - 12:00 (end of tefillah): Tot Shabbat outside in the garden area in front of the small house, directly to the north of Mercaz.
The playroom is a dedicated nursing room with space for 3 adults. Most toys will be put away.
Kids are invited to return to services before Kiddush sitting with their parents.
Sign up for Shabbat Tefilah here. Adults and children 12 and older should each sign up separately and children under 12 can be included in the field for children. We appreciate your patience while we work on our sign-up and process.
Every other Tuesday evening barring rain, 8:30 - 9:30 in the Frasch family garden.
Next class on July 27th.

Our membership is the beating heart of how we continue to thrive as an organization. We have a sliding scale membership at Mercaz. While it is not required to attend, it’s a great way to show your investment in our community.
