Covid Guidelines

Beth Israel Congregation 
COVID Guidelines
Last revision:  October 6, 2022

We comply with the latest guidelines issued by both Michigan’s government and the Washtenaw
County Health Department
, except where stated.

For all Beth Israel events:

  • People should stay home if they do not feel well or are symptomatic.
  • Face masks are optional, but strongly recommended at all indoor Beth Israel events and required in the Beth Israel Religious School. Details on the CDC’s measure of COVID-19 community level in Washtenaw County can be found here.
  • Full vaccination, including up-to-date boosters, for those ages 5 and older is required for attending all Beth Israel events, indoors and outdoors, as well as Beth Israel events that do not take place at Beth Israel. COVID vaccines for children under age 5 are now available, but Beth Israel is not currently requiring the youngest children to be vaccinated.

Please Get Vaccinated Against COVID-19 as Soon as You Can

In support of the Jewish values of protecting life and health, Rabbi Caine, Rabbi Dobrusin, and the Board of Directors of Beth Israel Congregation urge all members who can, to get vaccinated against COVID-19. The available vaccines are safe and effective. Vaccination protects not only you, but also community members who have medical conditions that preclude vaccination and children who are not yet eligible to be vaccinated.
