COVID-19 & Delta Variant Protocols
Service Attendance: In-Person & Livestream

The High Holy Days will bring days "whose holiness awakens the deepest awe" (Unetaneh Tokef). To ensure pikuach nefesh/preserving life during the variant surge, we will seek deepest awe as one community through multiple access opportunities, with these updates to our protocols:

In-Person Service Registration
To reduce crowd-size and to spread out service attendance, we will cap each service at 1/3 sanctuary capacity. Members will be given the option to sign up for up to two in-person services. Members and guests are invited to participate via livestream. Register at rodephshalom.org/hhd-registration. If you are attending the Outdoor Service for Families with Children, registration is not required.

Vaccination
Proof of vaccination is required to attend services. Bring your card or a picture of it.

Masking
Proper mask wearing is required (covering your nose and mouth).

Livestream Registration
Please sign up at rodephshalom.org/hhd-registration. After completing the form, you will receive an email with links to online services. If you need assistance with this process, contact highholydays@rodephshalom.org.

Livestream Experience
We are thrilled to share we have greatly enhanced our production. Congregants in the sanctuary will notice cameras and may be filmed. Our production partners are extraordinarily respectful of the worship experience we seek to create. We have the opportunity to share these services via livestream with congregants and guests; please feel free to invite friends. If you are watching via livestream, digital flipbooks/prayerbooks are available, free of charge. Click here to access the flipbooks for each service. 

Connect Friends & Family to RS High Holy Day Livestream Services!
Livestream High Holy Day services have the potential to expand our reach and embrace Jews and seekers! Last year, high numbers of otherwise infrequent High Holy Day observers attended livestream services. They connected to a service through relationships -- from the recommendation of someone they knew. If you have friends or family disconnected from the synagogue world and who might like an easy way to connect, let them know our High Holy Day livestream is open to all!
 

We are confident that our in-person worshippers will share trust and responsibility in our safety protocols, that our livestream worshippers will be fully present, and that each portion of our community will inspire the other. Even amid disappointment, we are eager to enter days whose holiness awakens deepest awe. L'shana Tova.
