Health and Safety Protocols

Our COVID protocols represent our desire to be together for in-person services and programs, in ways that are consistent with our Jewish values and commitment to protecting our sacred community.

We ask that you continue to wear face masks, socially distance, stay home when you are sick (from any contagious illness), and get vaccinated and boosted if you and your family members are eligible but have not already done so. We must all do what we can to take care of each other. As always, our clergy and staff are here to support you.

If the trajectory of the pandemic changes, or health guidelines change in a way that impacts our thinking, we will reassess these plans as needed. As always, our top priority is the safety and health of our clergy, staff, congregants, and guests.

Religious services, as well as many Temple programs, are presented virtually for those that prefer to join us in that format.

We invite you to reach out to Rabbi Jonathan Cohen or Interim Executive Director Kim Cole with feedback, concerns or specific questions.


Health and Safety Policies

  • We now have a vaccine requirement for all in-person services and events. The vaccine mandate will require proof of vaccination for those eligible (two doses of Moderna or Pfizer or one Johnson & Johnson for those 12 years of age and older). We strongly encourage members and guests to obtain boosters and vaccinate children 5-12 years old. If guidelines and approvals change, we will adjust our protocols accordingly.
  • In large group gathering, such as religious services, programs and events, masks are required except when eating. This is to protect the elderly, immunocompromised, and unvaccinated children.
  • Classrooms (excluding Ganon Gil), learning sessions, and other small group gathering with children, adults, and families are mask-optional. This is in conjunction with the continued vaccine requirement for adults. Individuals may choose to mask at any time and we will continue to provide masks at the front entrance. In recognition that each individual’s circumstances and health conditions are different, please be respectful of others who prefer to be masked.
  • You can easily submit your proof of vaccination ahead of time at ttti.org/vaccine or when you arrive at a service or event. Once we have record of your vaccination status, you will not need to provide proof at future gatherings.
  • We have masks, hand sanitizer, a new air filtration system, and at this time all food and drink will be individually packaged, plated, or served.
  • We strongly encourage unvaccinated, immunocompromised, and ill attendees to participate virtually.

Life Cycle Events including B’nai Mitzvahs & Funerals

  • We will not require proof of vaccination at b’nai mitzvahs, funerals and other life cycle events, assuming there is no food or drink. However, we strongly encourage all attendees to be vaccinated if eligible.
  • If food and drink are to be served, all attendees must provide proof of vaccination if eligible.
  • Families and friends traveling from out of town are strongly encouraged to take extra precautions and submit to COVID testing prior to the event if possible.
  • We strongly encourage unvaccinated, immunocompromised, and ill attendees to participate virtually.

TLC, Kids, and Teens

  • Proof of vaccination is not required for students at Shabbaton and Sunday/Wednesday Learning, but proof of vaccination is required for Chai Learning.
  • Proof of vaccination is required for those 12 and up at family and teen events, as food and drink may be provided.
  • In large group gathering, such as Tefillah and other TLC-wide programming, masks are required. This is to protect the elderly, immunocompromised and unvaccinated children.
  • Classrooms (excluding Ganon Gil), learning sessions and other small group gathering are mask-optional. Learners may choose to mask at any time and we will continue to provide masks at the front entrance. In recognition that each individual’s circumstances and health conditions are different, please be respectful of others who prefer to be masked.
  • Food and drink will be available, as appropriate, in classrooms and other small group settings.
  • We strongly encourage students from 5-12 years of age to become vaccinated.

Proof of vaccination can be submitted here, by emailing a copy of your card/proof of vaccination to together@ttti.org, or at any in-person service or program.
