Important Update for In-Person Programs and Services at BJ

Due to the continued increase in COVID-19 positivity in New York City, particularly on the Upper West Side, BJ has reinstated our mandatory mask policy until otherwise noted.

In consultation with our COVID-19 Re-Entry Task Force, we have determined that BJ will require masks on campus for all Shabbat, holiday, and other programs, effectively immediately.

Our full vaccination requirement, including first booster for those eligible, remains in place. In addition, antigen tests may be required for upcoming events. 

Pre-registration for in-person Shabbat services is still encouraged and there are no capacity restrictions. If you are unable to register before Shabbat, you are still welcome to join us and will be registered on-site by our check-in team.
