IMPORTANT UPDATE REGARDING SERVICES
Dear Community Members,
The government now requires all religious premises to use the LHS and Vaccination scheme.
We are putting in practice a procedure that meets this requirement and the principles of Jewish law.
Anyone over the age of 12 who wishes to attend a Shabbat or Festival service and does not wish to carry or operate a phone must send the Synagogue a clear or scan of photo of their vaccination record (QR Code or paper record) . If you do this, we will take care of the rest (including LHS) at the JCC main entrance on Robinson Place.
For the last days of Passover, our system will only work if we receive your vaccination record before Thursday at 3:00pm. Please email or WhatsApp it to us.
Anyone under the age of 15 will only be allowed to attend services if they’re accompanied with an adult when entering the JCC.
It is illegal to enter the JCC or OLS without the LHS and Vaccination scheme. We are enabling anyone who wishes to observe this halacha to still attend services without needing to operate a phone themselves. We understand the inconvenience this will cause and beg your patience.
