Chag Sameach!

We are excited to welcome you to join us for our Sukkot, Shmini Atzeret, and Simchat Torah celebrations.

Sukkot Happenings

September 20-26
Sukkot is a very special and sacred time for all of us. It is generally a time when we gather together as a community and with friends for food, prayer, study, conversation, and fun. This year, like last, will be different as we continue to pivot. The clergy, Executive Committee, and staff are working to bring as much of the ruach/spirit of this sacred holiday to our kehillah.

Sunday, September 19 | Build: 8:00am | Decorate: 11:00am

Men’s Club and Sisterhood are building and decorating the Sukkah, we would love you to come and participate with us. All are welcome to join either or both. If you would like to volunteer with building, contact zacharyhorowitz@hotmail.com. If you would like to volunteer for decorating, contact smallfryeterp@icloud.com.

CONGREGATION NEVEH SHALOM’S COVID-19 POLICY AS IT RELATES TO HHDs

If you are coming to the building for in-person services, here is our current policy.

Health

Only come to the CNS building if you are feeling healthy. Do not come to CNS if you’re feeling ill and for sure, do not come to CNS if you have COVID – including being asymptomatic.

Vaccination

All congregants, guests, and visitors who are eligible to be vaccinated and will be in the building for more than 15 minutes are expected to be vaccinated. Children under the age of 12 and those not eligible for vaccination are welcome to attend services/programs in the building.

Masking While at CNS

All congregants, guests, and staff are required to wear appropriate and correctly fitted (covering nose and mouth) facemasks in all public indoor and outdoor spaces at CNS (face shields are not acceptable).

CNS expects members, guests, and staff to adhere to this masking policy while on campus to protect the vulnerable and unvaccinated among us, including children. Those not adhering to the policy will be asked to put on an appropriate mask; if that individual refuses, they are subject to removal from the CNS premises.

Physical (Social) Distancing

CNS continues to provide for physical distancing in seating/room set-ups for services, education, and programming. While there are no “state-mandated” capacity limits, each CNS space does have a capacity limit which will be reduced in order to provide for physical distancing.
