Sh'arim Family Service
Effective immediately, all in-person activities at Shaarai Shomayim are suspended. Programs, services and Sh’arim will be accessed virtually – further details will be sent in the coming days. Our plan is to resume in-person Shabbat services on
Friday, January 28th and in-person Sh’arim on Sunday, January 30th. We will adjust these dates as appropriate.
At our recent Board of Trustees meeting, the board passed a proposal that limits access to our in-person services, events and Sh’arim to those who either are fully vaccinated and boosted (if eligible) and to those who are not eligible to be vaccinated because of age or health conditions. Everyone entering our building or participating in our programs will still need to be masked. This policy will go into effect on January 28th for anyone Age 12 and over and February 13th for anyone Age 5 and over. The policy will last as long as our medical advisors deem necessary. Please remember that almost all of our offerings have a way to participate virtually.
In order to implement this, we will be asking everyone who comes to any in-person event to show your vaccine card (paper or electronic). Separate details will be sent to our Sh’arim community on how their information will be collected.
