IMPORTANT UPDATE REGARDING SERVICES
To enter most premises, the government now requires three vaccination doses. The government has announced the addition of health code colors into the vaccine pass to differentiate persons with a higher risk of infection.
Persons under the category of “Red Code” are NOT allowed to enter the Synagogue. Only those with a “Blue Code” or “Amber Code” on their vaccine pass are allowed to enter the Synagogue.
The government’s approved Shabbat arrangement will continue to be in place.
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 scan or photo of their vaccination record (Blue or Amber QR Codes). Please email or WhatsApp it to us. If you do this, we will take care of the rest (including LHS) at the JCC main entrance on Robinson Place.
Children aged 5 to 11 are required to have received at least the first vaccine dose within three months. If they received their first dose three months ago or earlier, they are required to receive the second dose. If you want your child to be able to enter the Synagogue and the JCC on Shabbat and Yom Tov, without operating your phone, please send us a copy of their Vaccine QR code. If we do not have their QR code available, they will not be permitted to enter.
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.
PLEASE BE REMINDED THAT MASKS ARE MANDATORY AT ALL TIMES IN THE SYNAGOGUE.
