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. 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, our main services will be located in the dining hall of Gann Academy, which has excellent ventilation, doors that can be opened to provide cross ventilation, and high ceilings. Both childcare and our youngest shorashim (tot) children's services will be held outdoors under separate canopies, and children's services will be held in Gann Academy's Beit Midrash, across from the dining hall.

Masks are required for all people aged 2 and above for in-person indoor services. We will not be requiring proof of negative test result or vaccination attestation.


Food. All food will be served and eaten outside. There will be a buffet this year, but served at many different tables to discourage crowding. We can still enjoy bagels and schmeer together, so please bring a sweater if the weather turns chilly!


Food and Allergies

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



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.
