We have great news regarding the TAE COVID-19 protocols! Because of the steady downward trend of COVID-19 cases, the COVID Task Force met and agreed to align TAE’s COVID protocols with city and state guidelines. While many of our mask requirements will be relaxed, we strongly recommend that you wear a mask for your own health and safety and for those around you. If you are sick or have been directly exposed to a communicable illness, we ask that you err on the side of caution and stay home.
SHABBAT AND B’NAI MITZVAH SERVICES:
- Vaccination and COVID Tests – Proof of vaccination and COVID-19 testing will no longer be required.
- Traditional Service at 7:00 p.m. and B’nai Mitzvah Services – As of this Friday, March 4th, masks will be encouraged, not required. Please be mindful of those around you and respect personal space as needed. Services will continue to be simultaneously live-streamed. Don’t miss this Friday’s special Refugee Shabbat Service!
- Young Children’s Shabbat Service at 6:00 p.m. – As of Friday, March 11th, this service will resume! Young children who attend this service cannot be vaccinated. Mask protocols are to be determined.
- Oneg Shabbat – Oneg Shabbat receptions will resume in the Social Hall soon. We encourage you to wear a mask when not eating or drinking.
- Band and Chorale – Band of Milk and Honey and the TAE Chorale will resume playing at select Shabbat services.
- Parties will resume in the Social Hall. Courtyard parties are encouraged.
- Masks are encouraged, not required.
- If you would like to reserve the Social Hall or Courtyard for a celebration, such as a bar or bat mitzvah, please click here to complete a room reservation form. Heidi will then help you with the process!
RELIGIOUS SCHOOL AND YOUTH GROUP:
- To align with the local school district policies, as of Sunday, March 13th, masks will be encouraged, not required during religious school and youth group events.
- Effective immediately, wellness forms will no longer be required. Please keep your children home if they show any sign of illness.
OFFICE AND MEETINGS:
- Meetings may resume on campus.
- Mask are encouraged, not required.
While mask policies are relaxing on campus, our main concern is keeping our community as safe and healthy as possible. We ask that you stay home if you are sick and to be respectful of the preferences of those around you. We will continue to monitor the COVID case and hospitalization rates and modify policies as needed.
As always, we appreciate your patience and understanding. We are looking forward to seeing all of you at our Purim celebrations!
