Brotherhood Synagogue

Our Board of Directors and Reopening Task Force, under the guidance of our medical advisors, have implemented several policies to protect our community during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our policies follow the principle of pikuach nefesh, the directive to preserve human life, while also enabling us to come together as a community to pray, learn and socialize.

Our policies are currently as follows (subject to change as the situation changes):

  • Entrance into the building for all people ages 12 and over is limited to those
    who are fully vaccinated.  Adults and children must wear masks at all times
    while in the building.
  • Our security staff are directed to request proof of vaccination status (CDC vaccination card or NY Excelsior pass) and deny access to those who cannot
    present it.
  • Events in our Community Room are being held at a limited capacity. If you are planning to host an event, please contact the Reopening Task Force (reopen@brotherhoodsynagogue.org) to discuss the current protocols.
  • If you have recently been exposed to COVID (according to the CDC, an exposure is defined as being within 6 feet for 15 minutes of someone who subsequently exhibits symptoms or has a positive COVID test less than 48 hours after the exposure) we ask that you refrain from entering our Synagogue until you have had a negative COVID test five or more days post-exposure.
  • Please do not enter our building unless you can answer no to the following 3 questions:

1. Are you feeling ill today?

2. Have you tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days?

3. Have you been in close contact with anyone with COVID-19 in the past 14 days? (Admission to the building is acceptable if you have had a negative COVID test five or more days post-exposure).

If you have any questions about our policies, please contact the Reopening Task Force at reopen@brotherhoodsynagogue.org.
