COVID-19 Protocols

Updated as of 5/24/2021

In accordance with the current New York State regulations and with guidance from Darkhei Noam's Planning Committee, we are pleased to announce the following changes to our Shabbat protocols:

  • Bring your own siddur, chumash, tallit, and kippah.
  • It is no longer necessary to register to attend indoor Shacharit at MCS. Although you do not need to register to attend, please email Jordana if you would like to be included in contact tracing.
  • There will be a section on either side of the mehitza for those who wish to maintain 6-ft social distance and a section for vaccinated individuals who are comfortable sitting closer to other community members. Per CDC guidelines, unvaccinated individuals are asked to continue sitting in the section that maintains distancing.  
  • Masks are required at indoor davening for all in attendance. 
  • Masks are no longer strictly required but are highly encouraged by vaccinated individuals at outdoor davening; unvaccinated people should remain masked.
  • Children are welcome if they can remain masked and stay near a parent at all times.
  • We hope to welcome as many of the DN community to outdoor Kabbalat Shabbat and outdoor Musaf. Please let us know at if you need any accommodations to help you to be there.

We will, of course, continue to consult with the Planning Committee and accordingly update our policies to reflect the current science, state regulations and the needs of our community.
