Following the great success in August, Shir Hatzafon will continue to hold a combination of digital activities and physical services in the coming months and for Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur. We are evolving best practices for maintaining Jewish life during these times, and we hope these changes will enable you to participate in Shir Hatzafon events with comfort and safety.

Important new Shir Hatzafon safety and registration information
To ensure everybody’s safety, we ask you all to please note and observe the following:
Registration required for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur
- To ensure safe distancing during services in the synagogue, physical participation this year will be limited to 50 attendees in accordance with the latest government regulations.
- If you wish to join us during the High Holy Days, please register in advance by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org (or by using the links below) with your name, the number of guests and the services you wish to attend.
- To reserve your place, please contact us as soon as possible. Priority will be given to current Shir Hatzafon members.
- For people unable or uncomfortable to visit in person, we will also provide live participation for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services via Zoom. The Zoom links will come in a later email.
Safety measures during services
- We will continue physical distancing during services. Families and groups that come together are of course welcome to sit together, but otherwise we ask everyone to leave seats vacant between yourself and other guests.
- Due to current local policies and the expected increase in participants during September, we require all guests to wear face masks at all times when inside the building.
- Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the building, and we ask you to wash your hands regularly.
- Please stay home and join us via Zoom if you have any symptoms of illness.
