In-person Evening Minyan Resumes June 1

Among the many aspects of congregational life that have been out-of-the-ordinary during the COVID pandemic has been our daily minyan.  As we look forward to improving public health circumstances, we have made plans to transition back towards our full daily minyan schedule.  Please see below to learn about our plans.
Morning Minyan
On June 1st, Beth Ahm will return to our pre-pandemic morning service schedule:
Sunday                      9:00am
Monday-Friday        7:00am
For the time being, morning services will continue to meet on Zoom. 
Evening Minyan
We have had a full weekday service schedule for evening services throughout the pandemic and will continue with our current schedule:
Sunday                                  5:00pm
Monday-Thursday              7:00pm
Friday                                    6:00pm
Beginning on June 1st, we will be inviting people into the synagogue building for in-person evening minyan.  We will be meeting in the main lobby of the synagogue and will follow proper safety protocol.  There is sufficient space in the lobby for even a larger-than-average minyan crowd, so there will be no need to have people sign-up in advance in order to attend.  In the near-term, we will continue to use Zoom so that people can join us online. 
As we have throughout the pandemic, we will follow a policy of counting a minyan only when there are 10 people gathered in one space.  While we have recited one kaddish at the end of weekday Zoom services, we have been operating without a minyan during this period.  As we welcome people to join us in-person, we plan to have a minyan in-person each night.
We are all in the midst of a variety of transitions happening---in the workplace, with our relatives and friends, and with Beth Ahm as well.  I am excited for us to be able to increase opportunities for our congregation to be together in the coming months.  Minyan is one important aspect of that.  Thank you for your dedication to our Minyan!
