In-Person Shabbat Protocol

In-Person Services Sign-up and Attendance Guidelines 

Please join us as we pray, learn, and celebrate together. While we will continue to offer our services and programs virtually, we are holding in-person services in our sanctuary with advance signup. We are limiting attendance, for the safety of our entire community. Seating in the sanctuary will be socially distanced except for those who cohabit and everyone will need to wear a mask. We ask that you arrive as close start of service as possible. One additional slot for a Shabbat Usher is also available.

As the health and safety of our congregants, your families and our staff are of the utmost importance, we need everyone to follow all guidelines in place to help stop the spread of COVID-19.  

Please bring your own kippot and tallit. During this period, special modifications to our Torah and other services will be in place to minimize contact between participants. 

We are not open to the greater community at this time, only to our members. We also ask if you have attended services in-person once during a particular month, please give others a chance.

As a reminder, if you or anyone in your household, even a child, is ill, have any COVID-19 symptoms or has been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 please do not attend services. 

We will review these in person services and COVID-19 guidelines routinely and they may be adjusted based on CDC and public health organizations guidance. 

For those who do not sign-up before our attendance slots fill up or who wish to continue to participate from home, we will continue to meet virtually through Zoom using the same links you've been provided.

If by 1PM on Friday you observe open slots, you are welcome to sign on
even if you had previously attended a Shabbat service during the month

Or give us a call (during business hours) to sign up by phone at 404.250.3338.

COVID-19 Protocols

  • COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. We look to the CDC and public health organizations for guidance. At this time the CDC has indicated that it’s important for everyone to continue using all the tools available to help stop the COVID-19 pandemic as we learn more about how COVID-19 and the COVID 19 vaccines work in real-world conditions.  
  • We have members of our community who may not be vaccinated or children who cannot yet be vaccinated, some with underlying health conditions. 
  • So for now, when you are at a COH event, even fully vaccinated individuals must continue to wear masks correctly and consistently, maintain physical distance, and take other recommended precautions, such as washing hands often, and following any other protocols that are in place when we are around others. 

COVID-19 COH Member IN-PERSON Guidance 

  • Correctly and consistently wear a mask that completely covers your nose and mouth
  • When in the sanctuary, please remain in your designated seating location, as directed by the Usher
  • Stay at least 6 feet away from others who do not live with you
  • At the end of the service, the Rabbi and the Usher will direct participants to leave by household groups. Please directly exit the building and courtyard
  • At this time, no eating or drinking will be permitted in the building or the courtyard following services
  • Stay home when you or someone at your home are sick or have any COVID-19 symptoms. 
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds (or use hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol)
  • Let us know if you become sick or exposed to COVID-19 after you attend services or join us at COH in person.
