High Holy Days FAQs

Note: B’nai Torah has been following and will continue to follow the recommendations of the CDC and work closely with our Medical Advisory Committee to make the best decisions for the safety and comfort of our community. All this information is subject to change.

Will masks be required?
Masks are strongly encouraged for High Holy Days services. All those who are unvaccinated (adults and children) are asked to wear masks when in the building.

Will there be any social distancing measures in place for seating?
This year, many people who would usually attend services in person will opt to attend services online, thereby opening seats in both the Sanctuary and Family Services. This will allow for self-spacing and social distancing.

Can we opt for some online services but still request physical seats?

Yes, you can request tickets and opt for online services. Zoom links will be provided for all of our full services.

What is the High Holy Day service schedule?
We are offering a full High Holy Day experience with both in-person and online options. Click here for the full schedule of services. 

Can I purchase guest tickets?

Yes, you may purchase tickets for services in person or for online services for your guests. Call the office at (561) 392-8566 or membership@bnai-torah.org.

Do I need to be vaccinated to attend High Holy Day services?

We ask that everyone who attends services in the synagogue be fully vaccinated. This will be an honor system, and we will not be checking vaccination status.

Will there be programming for children? Can they attend services? Will they have to wear masks? Will the adults running the youth programming be wearing masks?
All children, regardless of vaccination status, are welcome in the building. However, all unvaccinated children will be asked to wear a mask when in the building. All of the teachers and service leaders are required to wear a mask.

Will there be babysitting for young children?

Babysitting will be available for children ages 2 to 5 years old. (Children must be fully potty trained and not in diapers.) Registration for babysitting is included in the Membership/High Holy Day forms.

What will happen in the event of another outbreak or the threat of a new variant?
The safety of our congregants is our top priority. We have been and will continue working with our Medical Advisory Committee, as well as following the guidelines put forth by the CDC. Should there be any change that makes it less safe to be together, we will adjust our plans accordingly and communicate them to our B’nai Torah community.

We are looking forward to being together with you, in person or online, for the 2021 High Holy Day season.
