By registering you agree to the following rules and guidelines. 

  • Members and regulars only. These meetings are open to Kehillah members and regulars only. All outsiders, even if they are guests of our members, will not be allowed entry. We hope for a day where we can reinstate our famous Kehillat Shaar HaShamayim hospitality, and this is a necessary first step to reaching that goal.
  • Children and high risk individuals. In this initial phase, we cannot accommodate any children under the age of Bar/Bat Mitzvah. Those over the age of 65 or in a high-risk group should consult with their trusted medical professional before attending.
  • Registration. All who wish to attend Friday and/or Shabbat meetings, must register in advance via our online form. Those who do not register will be unable to attend meetings upon arrival.
  • Conditions and guidelines. The conditions and guidelines for attendance of these meetings is 1) washing/sanitizing hands before arrival, 2) maintenance of 6 feet social distancing between people, 3) wearing face masks, 4) avoiding entry into the home or contact with any shared surfaces.
  • Symptoms. Anyone with any of the following symptoms may not attend in-person meetings at this time: cough; shortness of breath or difficulty breathing; fever; chills; muscle pain; sore throat; new loss of taste or smell.
  • Illness. Anyone who does not feel well even without experiencing these specific symptoms - may not attend in-person meetings.
  • Exposure. If one has been infected with COVID-19 or has self-quarantined because of exposure to an individual infected or suspected to have been infected with COVID-19, must be symptom-free for at least 14 days before attending in-person meetings.
  • Bring your own chair. Each registered member must arrive on Friday with their own chair to place on their designated spot. This chair will be exclusive to them and remain there until removal on Saturday night. 
  • Shared items. No Siddurim or other shared articles will be provided. Registered members must make sure to bring their own.
  • Restrooms. There will be no bathroom access for the time being. We are looking into options for a portable toilet, but have not secured one yet. Please work with the assumption that there will not be one. If anyone wishes to sponsor a portable toilet, please contact us by replying to this email.
    UPDATE (6/11): We have secured a portable toilet and sink! If you would like to contribute towards this expense, kindly click here to visit our donation page.
  • Water bottles. We are working on securing water bottles to be distributed among meeting participants. If you would like to purchase and deliver a few cases of water bottles, please respond to this email to let us know.
  • Please do your part! Unlike other communities, no individual will be tasked with policing these guidelines. By registering to attend, you agree to adhere to all the rules mentioned above without exception. I will not hesitate to shut down these meetings if we are unable to act responsibly and adhere to these guidelines. We must each do our part, so that we can continue expanding our re-opening plan.
