Rabbi Mitchell Novitsky and Rabbi Aaron Griver, Hazzan will be leading all services.
Dear Members, Congregants, Neighbors, & Friends:
The High Holy Days (HHD) are swiftly approaching. We at Temple Beth Ami (TBA) are planning to have live services in our sanctuary. Unlike any time in our 65 year history, this year will be different due to COVID-19. We will be complying with the requirements of the City, State, Federal, CDC and other agencies.
With this in mind certain rules must be observed by every person upon entering our lobby. Some of them are but not limited to:
Due to social distancing, we are unable to provide assigned seats. If you plan to attend any of our HHD Services, it is IMPERATIVE that you register by September 10, 2020 so that we can organize the seating accordingly. To register, reply to this email or call Jill in the TBA office at 215 673-2511 Monday-Thursday any time after 3:00 PM. If you do not talk to her directly, please be sure to leave your name and the best phone number for her to reach you at in order to complete your registration. We will do our best to accommodate everyone who wants to attend, but the number of seats available will be reduced to ensure that we adhere to all social distancing guidelines, therefore we must prioritize our members in good standing.
We at TBA wish everyone a healthy, prosperous and Happy New Year.
Yours in Judaism,
Barry Stucker, President
Temple Beth Ami
