For our mutual benefit, observation of a few simple rules will enable us to maintain the proper decorum:
- Kindly greet someone you don’t know with Shabbat Shalom or other appropriate salutation.
- Men are required to wear a kippah (head covering) in the sanctuary. It is also customary that males past Bar Mitzvah age wear tallitot during Shabbat morning services.
- Women may optionally don kipot and/or tallitot.
- Please do not place prayer books or Chumashim (bibles) on the floor. It would be appreciated if you would return them to the book case in the atrium.
- Smoking is prohibited on the synagogue premises. Additionally, in honor of Shabbat we ask that no one smoke near the synagogue on Friday evening, Saturday or during holidays.
- Photography/videography is prohibited on Shabbat and holidays. The office can arrange to record your simcha with an unattended recorder upon request.
- In respect of Shabbat (and fellow congregants) kindly refrain from writing and the use of electronic devices.
