Given the current health crisis, we must be very, very concerned about people's health. Therefore in order for Rosh Hashana services to work we need to follow safety guidelines.

We have received a 13-page booklet from the State of California and LA County of guidelines for reopening. We have also received Halochos and guidelines from the Rabbonim of California.

The list below includes guidelines for Rosh Hashana and incorporates guidelines of our Rabbonim, State, County and City.


* People MUST register in advance for the Services. 
   Only registered people will be allowed in.

* Services will be as short as possible.

* Chairs/tables will be arranged in advance to maintain social distancing guidelines, no moving of chairs.

* Limited shade areas, please wear a hat and/or sunglasses.

* No one is allowed in unless they are wearing a mask.

* No one with the virus or virus-like symptoms may come to Services.

* People who are 65 years and older or who have high-risk conditions should consult with their doctor beforehand about attending. 

* If you have any health concerns, do not feel guilty about not attending.

* No one to bring food in. No one to congregate.

* Children under Bar or Bat Mitzvah must remain next to their parent to attend the Services, or attend the children's program.

* No one is to kiss the Torah when it is brought out for reading.

* The person called for an Aliyah should go up the Torah and make the Bracha, however the the person called up should NOT touch the Torah when making the Bracha.
