Pesach Update as of April 1st, 2021

03/24/2021 03:49:00 PM



1. Indoor/Outdoor Policy: Prviously our threshhold for davening inside was 40 degrees. Starting now, should the temperature be 50 degrees or warmer and it is not raining, we will daven outside (this may mean that the time for davening will shift from week to week in order for us to daven outdoors later in the morning or to avoid a forecast for rain). If it is colder than 50 degrees or if it is raining, we will have two minyanim - one inside and one outside. Please see the updated davening schedule below which reflects these changes (or click here). 

2. Visitors policy: Should you have visitors who do not come from a state that borders Maryland, they are permitted to daven at Beth Sholom under the following circumstances:

  • If they would like to daven at an indoor minyan, they must receive a negative Covid PCR test within 72 hours of coming inside the Beth Sholmo building.
  • If they would like to daven at an outdoor minyan, they can attend without being tested at all. 

3. Vaccination Policy + Precautions: We are not making any distinctions between those who are vaccinated and those who are not. ALL individuals who attend any Beth Sholom program, whether indoors or outdoors, whether they are vaccinated or not, must continue to wear masks, wash hands, and maintain 6 feet of social distancing. 

Finally, we recognize that some people are still not able to join us for any in person activities. Please click here to access a guide for davening at home on Pesach. Please do not hesitate to let us know if you need anything!
