We will provide kosher snacks, lunch, and dinner with vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free options.  Unfortunately we are not able to accommodate additional food restrictions beyond these but you are welcome to bring whatever supplementary food you like (no alcohol is permitted).
 

COVID-19 Protocols

This is the first time we are gathering our whole congregation together, and we will be extra cautious in order to enable as many congregants as possible to participate. Happily, many of our members are fully vaccinated. However, we also have many attendees under 12 who are not yet eligible for vaccination, as well as other attendees who are immunocompromised or otherwise at high risk who still depend on the community to take precautions to protect them.  In order to balance the loosening CDC and MA state requirements along with our obligation to protect our more vulnerable members, our final is policy is as follows:
 

Services, dancing and sing-alongs:

  • Masks are required (regardless of vaccination status) for
    • Services
    • Singing activities
    • Israeli dancing activity (Note: band members playing wind instruments will not be masked)
    • Yoga (by requirement of the teacher)

Dining:

  • Meals will be served family style. Masks are required while moving around in the dining hall and making plates. You are welcome to take your plate outside to eat if you prefer.
  • Snacks are available after lunch at the Camp Office. 
  • Unvaccinated members, please eat distanced from everyone outside of your “pod.”

Other activities: 

  • Unvaccinated members should wear masks whenever 6 feet of social distance cannot be maintained, inside or outside.
  • We request that everyone wear makes whenever 6 feet of social distance cannot be maintained and you are not sure of the vaccination or health status of those around you.
