Health and Safety

As we move into the High Holydays, we are focused on creating an experience that is both meaningful and safe for all members of our community, with the guiding principle of protecting the most vulnerable among us. First and foremost, we are a community and we take care of each other. We are conscious of both the desire and spiritual need to reconnect in person, as well as the ways in which the pandemic continues to evolve. Unfortunately,we are now faced with rising case numbers, the increased vulnerability of children who are not eligible for vaccination, and the ability of vaccinated people to carry and transmit delta. While we are not yet able to celebrate exactly as we did in years past, we hope that following these guidelines will allow is to be together safely, as a community.


For a thorough explanation of CDT's High Holyday COVID precautions and guidelines, please visit our FAQ page.

Location. This year, in order to give us all more breathing room and better ventilation, our main services will be located in the gym at Gann Academy, which has double the capacity of our normal space. Both childcare and children's services will be held outdoors under separate canopies, and children 11 and under will not be permitted to be in the gym.


Masks are required for all in-person service attendees indoors and out. We will not be requiring proof of negative test result or vaccination attestation.


Reservations for physically distanced seating and potential contact tracing are required for all in-person services and programs, including childcare. 


Food. All food will be served and eaten outside. There won't be a buffet this year, but we can still enjoy some bagels and schmeer together, if distanced!


Food and Allergies

Because of kashrut concerns, absolutely no food can be brought into Gann Academy. Snacks and lunch will be provided following children's services and at Rosh Hashanah kiddush respectively. All ingredients will be listed on the packaging. Covid prevention information is below.



On Yom Kippur, there will be a light Break-Fast following the Ne’ilah service. All ingredients will be listed on the packaging.


Fragrance-free Services

So that Congregation Dorshei Tzedek's services and events are accessible to all of our members and guests, we request that people refrain from wearing fragrances (perfume or cologne, scented oils, hair and body sprays, and other scented products) to High Holyday services.
