Indoor Services

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)

Updated 03/30/22

Agduas Achim has recently updated its COVID policy to be in-line with CDC guidelines. Masking is now optional.

What do I need to know to attend services in-person inside our synagogue? 
Who can attend indoor services?
Services are open to those who are ages 5+ and are up to date on their COVID vaccinations. (Those who have medical exemptions are allowed in the building. Please email Barry Nove). In addition, children in grades K-6 are invited to Noam services, and families with children ages 0-5 are welcome to Gan Shabbat. Babysitting is not offered at this time.
 
What is the mask policy?
Masks are now optional in all areas of the synagogue. Attendees may choose to wear masks if they wish. Masks are still available for those who would like one.
 
Will attendees have to keep physically distant from others?
Social distancing measures will no longer be enforced. Individuals are free to sit where they wish within the Cohen Sanctuary.
 
Will there be Kiddush after Shabbat services?
Kiddush has resumed to its normal sit-down status.
 
Will congregants be able to participate in services via Zoom?
Services will be transitioning away from Zoom and moving to livestreaming from the Cohen Sanctuary. Livestreaming will allow for remote viewing of services, but not remote participation in services, similar to the way Zoom has worked lately with simultaneous in-person services. 
-    Evening minyan will remain on Zoom. 
-    Morning minyan is now in-person in the Flax Family Chapel on Mondays and Thursdays, with a simultaneous Zoom. Non-Torah reading mornings continue to be on Zoom only. 
   Notice of this change will be provided through our weekly E-News and communication to minyan regulars.
 
Will members still have aliyot and other honors?
In-person attendees will have aliyot and other honors on the bima. Masks are not required when on the bima.
 
Members of the board and congregation will be available to answer questions 
and reassure you that you will be respected and assisted as needed.
