Procedure for joining the Ohr Chaim limited reopening starting Shabbos Parshas Shelach June 19th-20th

Please note while we normally encourage shul attendance, in these unprecedented times when group activities carry with them an element of Sakana (danger) people should strongly consider whether to join. We strongly discourage individuals who are over the age of 65 and anyone with underlying conditions from coming to shul. Everyone is encouraged to speak to their doctor to determine the safest course of action.

For any members of Ohr Chaim who would like to join the limited minyanim please send an email to the Rabbi ocrabbi@gmail.com with your name and number of seats you require and which minyanim you would like to join. Once we receive your email you will be placed on the waiting list. Only after receiving a confirmation email are you registered. Please come to shul only when you receive a response with a seat confirmation. Spaces are limited and Precedence will be given to members of the shul.

At the Shul everyone will be required to

Wear a mask at all times in the building

Wash/sanitize hands on arrival

Stay 6 feet apart

Bring your own siddur and tallis (we will provide a siddur for you to keep)

We will start Shabbos morning prayers at “Shochen Ad” and there will be no drasha or kiddush

At this time, we are only allowing men over 13 years of age.

Please bear with us as we navigate this uncharted territory. We all hope that Hashem the “healer of all flesh” sends a Refuah to the world and we be able to join again for Davening and learning at our beloved Shul.
