This Shabbat we are once again in our beloved sanctuary for Saturday morning services. We feel that is appropriate in light of the improving conditions and metrics we follow. The Six Feet Synagogue service will run a bit quicker than usual, with reduced singing, and Anti-Social Kiddush Club  (Kiddush-To-Go). We ask that you come on time, so that we may conclude early. In addition, the sanctuary may be quite cold as we plan to have windows and doors open to increase ventilation in the building. Please click here for our updated set of Practices & Community Expectations.


Kiddush-to-Go has been sponsored by Ellen R. Cherrick in memory of her grandmother, חיה ליבא בת שלמה הכהן ז"ל, whose 50th yahrzeit is today (28th of Adar), and in memory of her Grandfather, שלמה משה בן זאב ז"ל, whose yahrzeit is on the 5th of Nisan.
