What to expect when you come back to shul

July 10th update

Dear BEBY family,
 
Several weeks ago the government advised that houses of worship could open for services but limited to 30% capacity. You may be aware that some of our fellow congregations did open, but soon thereafter closed for various reasons, including the inability to maintain a minyan for services.

We have previously told you about the task forces which were established to address the myriad considerations that must be reviewed and implemented before opening safely. These include:

  • Accommodating our tenants (Gan Yeladim and Apex Kosher Catering)
  • Mapping of foot traffic patterns and guidance for entry and exit
  • Registration questionnaires for attendance at services
  • Seating plan and seat assignments
  • Cleaning protocols including research of appropriate materials and application thereof
  • Ritual object and prayer book management
  • Technology implementation for livestreaming
  • Contact tracing protocols
  • Blocking off of seating not in use
  • Installation of physical barriers to areas not in use
  • Social distancing

It is essential that all of these considerations be carefully reviewed in order to ensure the safe resumption of services with limited attendance.
 
We are as anxious as you are to get back to a semblance of normality, but out of an abundance of caution we must do our due diligence to ensure the health and safety of everyone who enters our building. As we continue to plan for holding services in the Sanctuary for weekday, Shabbat and the High Holy Days, we are asking for your valued input to help us plan appropriately. Please watch your inbox for an important survey on holding services in the building. We ask that you complete and return the survey as quickly as possible.
 
Rabbi Morrison will be on a well-deserved vacation from July 12th to 26th and we are hopeful that shortly after his return we will be able to announce the date on which we will resume services in the Synagogue.

Malcolm Weinstein, President
Rabbi Howard Morrison, Senior Rabbi
Candace Vogel, Executive Director

BECOME A SPONSOR

In our new norm with online Clergy led private services, Divrei Torah, Torah Readings, Cantorial Music, Rabbi Lectures and Classes, you too can also sponsor one of these weekly online live sessions in honour of your Simchas or in memory of your loved ones for a donation of $54.00.

Your generous sponsorship will be included in the weekly e-blast, as well as mentioned by the clergy at the beginning and end of the online live session you are sponsoring. While we are temporarily closed due to this health crisis, it is imperative we continue to keep our synagogue operating at this time thereby ensuring we are able to once again open our doors to you - our dedicated members, and to the Jewish community when it is viable to do so.

Please click on the form below to make your sponsorship.   
 
The Executive, Board and Clergy thank you for your continued support during this difficult time.
