אַשְׁרֵי יוֹשְׁבֵי בֵיתֶךָ עוֹד יְהַלְלוּךָ סֶּלָה׃Happy are those who dwell in Your house; they forever praise You, Selah.- Psalms 84:5

It is with great excitement that we announce our return to indoor services in our beloved, holy sanctuary, our spiritual home, this coming Shabbat June 18-19 as well as Sunday morning minyan!

With careful consideration for health and safety and with attention to the updates to State and local policies, we offer these guidelines:

  • We welcome all who wish to attend in person, in the sanctuary. There is no need to preregister for services.
  • · We will provide separate seating accommodations in the sanctuary for those who are not vaccinated against COVID-19.
  • · Any children who are unvaccinated are advised to be with their parents or other children. (A primary consideration for the children is that they are careful to avoid the area where those without the vaccination may be seated. This is for the safety of both the unvaccinated adult as well as the child.)
  • · We will continue to require face coverings as we consistently evaluate our policies. (CDPH guidelines continue to advise those who are not vaccinated to wear face coverings at indoor settings outside of the home. At Ner Tamid, we wish to temper potential isolating/exclusionary experience that may result from only requiring those who are not vaccinated to wear a face covering.)
  • · We will return to food service with oneg to follow Kabbalat Shabbat/Maariv (Friday night) and kiddush lunch to follow Shabbat morning services. We ask congregants to be careful to avoid bunching together in line for food and instead wait at a distance when not plating food.
  • · We will continue to provide Zoom services for those who are not able or ready to attend indoor, in-person services.
  • · We will continue to monitor recommendations from State and local agencies and provide updates to these guidelines as needed.

We look forward to being together inside our awesome, spiritual home as we celebrate Shabbat and other great moments together with joy!
