Outdoor minyanim ONLY starting Thursday

Due to the difficulty guaranteeing the health and well-being of our membership, starting on 2am Thursday morning, the Agudah building will be closed and the combination lock will be changed.

Davening will be available for members with masks in outdoor tents. Sifrei Torah will be available for these minyanim, as will limited access to the restrooms.

We expect the building to remain closed through Simchas Torah, at which point we will reevaluate.

Shul COVID-19 Changes

מנינים update: In order to enable people to daven at the time of their 
choice and to ensure social distancing at all מנינים, we are monitoring the
 מנינים and adjusting accordingly. We are also working to ensure that no
one comes to Shul at a scheduled time for a תפילה and does not find a מנין.

Face Masks: The Rav has stated that face masks covering the mouth
and nose must be worn at all times at the Agudah building. This
applies even when learning, davening for the amud, or leining for
the tzibbur. One who is unable to comply should not enter the building.

Family members (from the same household) must sit next to
each other so as to leave available more areas with proper social spacing.

Outdoor minyan: The Agudah would like to support an outdoor minyan
in the parking lot to accommodate those unable to enter the building.
Please reach out to President Aryeh Katz if you'd like to participate.

Non-members should choose Minyanim which have sufficient space 
for members and their children to sit with social distancing.
(Note we are full for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.)

עזרת נשים: On שבת morning, the balcony will be available for women. 
The second floor עזרת נשים will be available for overflow men.
