Important Update for In-Person Programs and Services at BJ

All BJ members, staff, visitors, and program attendees over the age of 5 are required to be fully vaccinated, including with boosters if eligible.

Children under the age of 5 are highly encouraged to be vaccinated. A formal decision about if/when to require vaccination for that age group will be made in August.

Masks are required for all indoor services and programming, including in shared campus spaces. Service leaders and participants may unmask during their parts of the service only with confirmed antigen testing prior to that service.

All communal meals, such as Shabbat dinners or Kiddush after services, will be eaten outdoors. If the meals take place indoors due to inclement weather or other issues, all participants will be required to take an antigen test first (provided by BJ).

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.

BJ’s 2022-2023 membership season is underway. Our spiritual and social justice work together has never been more vital, and if you’ve been joining us on Shabbat and consider us your spiritual home, we hope you consider becoming a member, no matter where you live.
