Covid Guidelines
The summarized version

We have masks by the door for those that need them.

1. For now, services are remaining outdoors.
2. We strongly recommend that everyone masks outside. Inside masks must be worn. 
3. All kids can now attend services masked, sitting next to their parents. (infants can still attend unmasked)
4. If you are not vaccinated, you must wear a mask AND maintain 6 feet distance. Unvaccinated people
can take their masks off to eat and drink as long as they maintain 6 feet of distance.
5. If you are fully vaccinated and choose not to wear a mask, you must ensure 6 feet of distance between you and anyone outside your family/pod.
6. Vaccinated travelers (domestic and international) should mask and distance for 7 days post-travel at shul due to Delta.

Thank you to everyone who participated in our annual Mercaz Sukkah Hop! 

It was so much fun seeing so many new and familiar faces, getting to visit the nine different sukkot (between the teen hop and the shul hop), hearing the younger Mercaz children singing “Sanctuary”, and doing the Bnei Akiva Mifkad. 

Special thanks/ todah rabah to the Barak family, the Zana/Vinikoor family, the Berlowitz family, the Barr/Ash family, the Becker/Kintzer family, the Britt Rosenthal family, the Mehlman family, the Rothstein family, and the Dershowitz family for opening up their sukkot and hosting the community. 

Extra special thanks to Sarah Dershowitz for organizing the sukkah hop and for keeping time to ensure the Mercaz sukkah hop train ran on time.
