Submitting a form is NOT guarantee of registration for a specific Minyan.. Please wait for an additional email which will list your specific Minyan assignments. We regret that we may not be able to accommodate all requests at this time.
If you want to make changes to your request or if you have not received assignments and would like help, please email email@example.com. DO NOT submit multiple forms for one person.
Guidelines for Minyanim at YISE during the reopening process:
The current plan is to reopen YISE for a limited set of Minyanim, with limited attendance, beginning on Monday, June 15. Please read the following guidelines, which will apply until further notice. Anyone who attends a Minyan without registering in advance, or who does not follow these guidelines, will be asked to leave the building.
If you have any problems completing the form or if you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Due to the small number permitted to participate in each Minyan, we regretfully request that only those over the age of Bar or Bas Mitzvah attend.
Please only register if you are a YISE member or part of a YISE member's household.
Unless gloves are worn, every person should make sure to clean his hands upon entering the building, whether by using hand sanitzer available upon entrance or thoroughly washing hands with soap at a nearby sink. When turning off the water, one should do so with a paper towel.
Attendance at each Minyan is currently limited. Please only attend if you have received confirmation that you are registered for a given minyan.
Everyone will be required to wear a mask which covers the mouth and nose, and must continually wear the mask while inside the building. Anyone who neglects to wear a mask will be asked to leave the building.
Everyone will be asked to stay at a distance of at least 8 feet from anyone else. We will have spots marked in each Minyan as to where people can Daven.
We ask that people bring their own Siddurim. We plan to have printouts of the Parsha available for Shabbos. Each one should only be used by one person and put in a collection box after use.
We insist that anyone exhibiting symptoms associated with COVID-19 or has been exposed to someone with COVID-19 in a way that quarantining is advised, not attend Minyanim. We cannot emphasize this point enough. Even if one's decision to stay home will mean that there will not be a Minyan, DO NOT COME TO SHUL.
The duration of the Tefillah will be shorter than that to which we are accustomed. People will be asked to Daven Pesukei Dezimrah at home and the Chazzan will begin with Yishtabach. Mincha, except Shabbos afternoon, will be a Heicha Kiddusha. There will not be singing during Davening, even on Shabbos, and there will be no Divrei Torah.
People must leave promptly after Davening is over, with appropriate distance between people.
Although we do plan on cleaning the restrooms during the day, there is no way we can provide a thorough cleaning each time the facilities are used. We encourage people to try to avoid using the Shul's restrooms.
We request that each attendee of a weekday Minyan commit to only attend that Minyan during the week and not attend another Minyan, at YISE or elsewhere.
All attendees agree to not bring any children or guests to Shul.
I understand that I should consult with a medical professional about attending if I am in a high risk category, whether due to age or medical history.
