Covid Attendance Guidelines - Revised September 24, 2021

Stay home, if in the past 14 days:

  • You have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.
  • You have experienced any symptoms of COVID-19.

If you are able to come to shul, our current policy is as follows:

Pre-registration is no longer required as of July 1.

All indoor tefillot and synagogue activities at Ramath Orah require masking for both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals except for children under the age of 2. You may remove your mask in the social hall while eating and drinking.

New 9/23/2021: Individuals speaking from the front pulpit (who must be fully vaccinated) may remove their masks while speaking, in order to make it easier for others to hear them.

We have designated the balcony (and a portion of the main sanctuary for people who have difficulty with stairs) as a place where social distancing will continue to be required for everyone. 

Unvaccinated children are welcome to sit next to their parents or in children's services but must remain masked at all times. As always, no children should be without adult supervision.

Eligible individuals are expected to get vaccinated as soon as they can. Vaccination status is a private health matter, and individuals must be treated with dignity and respect no matter their vaccination status or their willingness to disclose their vaccination status. 

We will host regular kiddush in the Social Hall but encourage those who are not comfortable to take their kiddush to-go.  

If you or someone you live with are at increased risk due to age or underlying medical conditions, please consult with your physician prior to attending.

If you test positive for COVID or develop any symptoms after attending shul, you must notify us (president@ramathorah.org) immediately.

We ask for your patience and cooperation during this period and ask that everyone respect the various comfort levels and different types of precautions taken by the members of our community. If you have questions about this policy, please do not hesitate to contact us.
