PRESIDENT's Message on COVID-19

5 June 2020

Hello all congregants,

Hoping you are all well and keeping safe. These are stressful times.

The Board of Directors has authorized the starting of services. The following strict rules must be observed:

  1. Face mask, covering nose and mouth, must be worn at all times.
  2. Sanitize or wash your hands when you enter the synagogue.
  3. Wear your own kippa, talis, and tefillin.
  4. Keep a distance of at least 2 meters from everybody else.
    No physical contact between congregants.
  5. No kissing of mezuzot or torah.
  6. Sit only in the rows that have not been closed. Keep at least 3 seats between each of you.
  7. On the bimah: only one person at a time. When reading the Torah, only the reader is on the bimah, the others are down below.
  8. No kiddushim.

Maximum Number: The one ordered by the Province of New Brunswick at the time of the service. Priority will be given to Congregation Members.

Please, I repeat, when you come to the synagogue, please ensure to follow the preceding rules.

We all want everybody to be safe.

Thank you.

Dr. F. Weil
