Please note the precautions we will be taking at IYYUN to ensure everyone’s safety and well being at this time.

* All participants in shul will be required to wear a mask.
* Reservations must be made to ensure enough space for each person
* Tables and chairs will be spaced 6ft apart, only people from the same family or “pod” will be allowed to sit together.
* All machzorim (prayer books) will be thoroughly sanitized before services, and there will be sanitizing wipes available to use in shul as well to sanitize all objects before and after use.
* We will be hiring a bathroom attendant who will be responsible for cleaning each restroom as soon as it is used, using all the proper disinfecting protocol.
* Rosh Hashanah first night dinner is by reservation ONLY. If we get enough reservations and interest, we will be hosting a socially distanced dinner, with each family at their own table with food served directly to them – there will be no buffets.
* The rest of the holiday, there will be no food served at shul, only services.
* We will hold an outdoor shofar blowing and tashlich service on Sunday afternoon at the Gowanus Canal. For those who are too concerned to come to shul, this is an opportunity to be outdoors with community and to hear the Shofar. The Rabbi will speak, there will be honey cake (individually wrapped) and an outdoor kiddush service.

Wishing you all a Ksiva Vachasima Tova – a sweet and good inscribing in the book of Life. May this year bring healing to the whole world.
Shana Tova U’metukah.
A Sweet, Happy and Healthy year to you all.
