Re-Opening Guidelines

Beth Israel Congregation 
(Re)Opening Guidelines
Last revision:  July 6, 2021

We comply with the latest guidelines issued both by Michigan’s government  and those issued by the Washtenaw County Health Department, except where stated.  (If there are additional restrictions for Ann Arbor, we follow those, too.)  We are not opting for the “religious exception.”

Michigan Epidemic Orders can be found here:,9753,7-406-98178_98455-533660--,00.html

For all Beth Israel events:

  • Physical distancing complies with state guidelines.
  • People should stay home if they do not feel well.
  • Facemask policy outdoors follows state guidelines.
  • Facemasks indoors are required for everyone (whether or not they are vaccinated) except those who cannot medically tolerate a face mask, children younger than 2 years old, and those presenting to the audience.
  • When Beth Israel provides food, there will be food available in individual servings, OR food will be served by a server who is masked.  Eating will take place outside.
  • Full vaccination is required for those who are eligible. This requirement will be satisfied by signage posted on all entrances into the building stating that by entering the building you are confirming that you have been fully vaccinated.
