Shabbat Minyan RSVP

:Dear Congregant,

Shul is an essential part of our lives and our sense of community. We are heartbroken that we had to be apart for so long and are very much looking forward to resume prayers. To do so safely, we have drafted 4 phases of reopening which you can review below. 


In order to accommodate our community safely and comply with social distance regulations, please take the time to fill out the form and waiver letting us know which services you will be attending on Shabbat. Reservations are on a first come first serve basis. If we hit capacity, we will contact you via email with an alternate minyan option in the neighborhood.

The form and waiver must be submitted before 3:00 PM on July 31st, Friday.

The safety of our community depends on you, so please adhere to all conditions and directives.

**Please note there will be no kids program and people over the age of 65 are encouraged to stay at home. Congregants shall assess their own risk knowing their medical history and family members with compromised immune systems**

Thank you so much,

MSS Shul

I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at MSS Shul may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, MSS Shul employees, volunteers, and program participants and their families.
