There are two in-person services conducted at CBS: Friday night services and Saturday morning services. As the Friday night services will continue to be conducted virtually, these protocols apply to Saturday morning services only. Please keep in mind that this is an evolving and fluid situation that will be revised and updated as the conditions warrant it.

1. All individuals 16 years or older must be fully vaccinated to attend Saturday morning services. Masks are optional for these individuals.

2. Children ages 2-15 are not required to be vaccinated at this time. Masks are required for these individuals while they are in the CBS building.

3. Attendance at Saturday services must be arranged via registration. Those who intend to participate in Saturday services must contact the office via email or phone no later than 4:00pm on the Thursday prior to the Saturday service. You may contact the office by CLICKING HERE.

4. Registration for Saturday services will open on the Monday prior. You may contact the office by CLICKING HERE.

5. Those who register will sign an attestation form at their first registration only. This form will certify that they are fully vaccinated (see Appendix A). This form can be submitted on-line or via email. Adults will sign the form on behalf of children. In lieu of the attestation form, individuals may provide a copy of their vaccination card. The form and the card will remain confidential. You can download the Attestation Form to bring with you or to email in advance by CLICKING HERE.

6. Those who do not feel well by Saturday morning should NOT attend services. It is better for the health of the congregation to stay home.

7. If less than 10 Jewish adults have registered for a service, the service will only be conducted virtually. An email will be sent out Friday afternoon informing those who registered whether the on-site service will take place that week.

8. If 10 Jewish adults have registered for a service, but less than 10 show up, the on-site service will be conducted according to procedures allowed in the absence of a minyan.

9. All service attendees must be at CBS by 9:45am on the morning of the service. The doors to the CBS building will be closed at 10:00 am.

10. Upon arrival at CBS, each attendee must stop at the check-in station that will be in place at the doors to the CBS building. The greeter will check off attendees on an Excel sheet containing the names of those who have registered.

11. The only rooms to be used during services are the downstairs hallway, the downstairs washrooms, the sanctuary, and the social hall. The second floor and the other rooms on the first floor will remain closed.

12. All attendees are requested to bring their own kippot and tallit. If an attendee does not bring or have their own kippah or tallis, an usher can provide one to them.

13. Torah processions will not be included in services at this time.

14. Washrooms: Only one person is allowed in each washroom at a time. More than one member of the same household may use the bathroom at the same time.

15. There will not be an oneg after services. The kitchen will therefore remain closed.

16. Any attendees who violate these protocols will be asked by the greeters or ushers to adjust their behavior to comply with the protocols.
