YISE Purim 2021 Registration
The Registration Deadline was February 14. Very limited space is available, but we may not be able to fill all requests, whether indoor or outdoor, even for members.
The following survey is for registration for Parshas Zachor readings, Taanis Esther Davening, Purim Davening and Megillah readings. Please read each section carefully.
We will make every effort to satisfy all requests, but due to Montgomery County restrictions on the number of people allowed in each location, we expect that many people will not be able to attend their first choice for Davening or Megillah reading.
In order to maximize the number of attendees, we request that children below Bar/Bat Mitzvah only attend with their parents, and older children are encouraged to attend at the same time as their parents so that they can sit together. Also keep in mind that unlike regular years, if a parent has to step out with a child in the middle of Megillah, there may not be any space available at a later Megillah reading, so we recommend not bringing very young children to the Megillah reading this year.
Please complete a separate form for each gender. If you would like to have different times for male and female members of a family, please mention that in the notes.
The outside locations will be in Kemp Mill. Parshas Zachor outside on Shabbos will be in the same location as Shabbos morning Davening. Purim Davening and Megillah reading will be in other locations. No outside Davening is currently planned for Taanis Esther.
There are many times listed. Not all times will be in all locations, with the combinations of times & locations to be determined based on demand.
If you have any questions about logistical details, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any Halachic questions, please contact Rabbi Rosenbaum.
Note that all COVID-19 rules apply at all YISE-sanctioned Minyanim, whether inside or outside, including:
- 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.
- 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.
