Youth Group Protocols

In order to keep everyone safe, we will need you to abide by the following protocols:


1.  There must be social distancing at all times. 

2.  Only one parent per family can attend.

3.  One parent must be present with their child at all times to ensure the 6 foot social distancing precaution. 

4.  Children aged 2 are strongly encouraged to wear a mask. 

5.  All children 3 years of age and over MUST wear a mask while on the premises of the shul property.

6.  All adults MUST wear a mask while on the premises of the shul property.

7.  We ask that when your group is over, you promptly leave. 

Due to safety concerns and the need for masks to stay on, please note that no food will be allowed to be eaten inside the chapel.  


If you can agree to follow all these guidelines we are so excited for you to join us and continue to recreate a fun and meaningful Shabbat experience for your kids!  However, safety is of utmost importance and if rules are not being upheld and safety becomes a concern because of certain behaviors, one’s ability to participate in groups will have to be reconsidered and re-evaluated.
