COVID-19 Protocols

Updated as of 8/16/2021

In accordance with the current New York State regulations and with guidance from Darkhei Noam's Planning Committee, our Shabbat protocols are as follows:

  • Shacharit will meet indoors at MCS at 9:15am; Musaf and Kiddush will take place in Central Park, weather permitting.
  • Bring your own siddur, chumash, tallit, and kippah.
  • You do not need to register to attend, but please email Jordana if you would like to be included in contact tracing.
  • Masks are required at indoor events for all individuals, regardless of vaccination status. Masks remain optional at outdoor gatherings.
  • 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.  
  • The leiner will be the only person at the bima. Gabbais will do their best to officiate from a significant distance. Members of the communirt receiving aliyot should stand outside of the "box" but close enough to see the Torah when doing the blessings.

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.
