Health & Safety Protocols
for all Indoor Services, Events, and Programs

Protocols updated September 15, 2022

All of our services—including for the High Holidays—are now mask-optional. In the Sanctuary, however, there will be a mask-only section on the Tompkins Place side, where masks are mandatory. We ask that all members of Kane Street make sure that they’ve uploaded vaccination proof in advance of services at Guests should come prepared to show proof of vaccination.  Our Saturday morning Sanctuary services will continue to be livestreamed (see below for links). We ask that anyone feeling under the weather stay home and encourage anyone who is immunocompromised to consider the risks involved in attending services in person.

We thank the COVID-19 Advisory Committee for the many hours of discussions and research that they have put in since the beginning of the pandemic to ensure the safety of our community. In particular, we thank Dr. Jeff Birnbaum and Dr. Ed Telzak—both long-time members of our Congregation—for their dedication. They have brought deep knowledge and years of experience in infectious diseases and epidemiology, and given considerable amounts of their time in reviewing and assimilating research on the very new medical and scientific literature about COVID-19, to inform our decisions since March 2020. Todah Rabah!
