B'nai Mitzvah COVID Protocol

Thank you, in advance, for adhering to the necessary restrictions for the day of the simcha as we celebrate your child(ren)'s milestone amidst the current pandemic.

A total of thirty (30) pre-registered in-person guests are welcome to attend services in the Sanctuary. You will receive a registration form and may register your guests or share the form for your guests to sign up on their own. We must receive the complete list of in-person attendees by 12pm on the Monday preceding the Bar/Bat Mitzvah.

During the week before the event, you will receive an email with the location of your family’s assigned seats within the Shearith Israel Sanctuary where the B'nai Mitzvah will be held. Seats will be assigned adjacent to each household family only and spaced apart from other households. 

The following restrictions must be adhered to for the day of the simcha:

  • If you are feeling sick, have had a fever, cough, difficulty breathing, loss of taste, or other potential signs of COVID-19 in the past 14 days, please know that you will be missed at the Simcha, but, please stay home or see a Doctor.
  • All attendees must wear a face mask at all times while in the Synagogue building (reusable or disposable).
  • We discourage anyone who is in the high-risk category from attending.
  • Upon entering the building you will see floor signs with arrows instructing the direction you will need to walk in. For distancing, we have one way pathways created.
  • Please maintain a distance of six feet from other attendees.
  • Hand sanitizer and Disinfectant wipes will be available throughout the building for use.
  • Restrooms are limited to one person at a time and will be sanitized hourly.

Our team of medical advisors has determined that B'nai Mitzvah students may be unmasked while leading the service provided they have taken a COVID-19 PCR test two weeks in advance of the event as well as a rapid test the day before the simcha, and tested negative each time. Social distancing must still be maintained throughout the service and on the grounds of the synagogue.

Attendees should note, then, that the B'nai Mitzvah student(s) may possibly be unmasked for a portion of the service.

If you have any questions, or concerns, related to your attendance, please do not hesitate to contact the Synagogue office at 404-873-1743.

We look forward to celebrating this Simcha with all of you!
