To Our Temple Sinai Congregational Family,

As has been our practice throughout the pandemic, we continue to evaluate Sinai’s health and safety protocols regarding Covid-19. Unquestionably, the significant rise in the number of positive cases and the resulting census in Metro Atlanta hospitals are alarming and a source of serious concern to us all.

Thus, as we prepare to usher in a New Year together, guided by the foundational Jewish value of pikuach nefesh (the preservation of life), and in order to provide a safe environment for our congregants, guests, staff, and children, the following modification is being made to our Covid-19 policy, effective immediately:

All unvaccinated individuals (those 12 and older) are asked to participate virtually in all Temple Sinai services and programs – including the High Holy Days – until further notice.

  • This applies to both indoor and outdoor* activities.
  • If you have already requested High Holy Day e-tickets and are no longer attending in person, you do not need to inform the office.

Please know that we have taken great strides to ensure our Holy Day services will be spiritually meaningful and fulfilling for virtual as well as in-person participants. Also note that our current mask mandate while in the building remains in place for everyone. 

Should you have any questions about this new policy, please contact president@templesinaiatlanta.org or hhd@templesinaiatlanta.org.

We all look forward to the time we can once again gather in person safely and with confidence, and we pray that time will come soon. Until then, thank you for doing your part to ensure our synagogue remains a healthy and safe space for all who pass through our doors.

With shalom and best wishes for a good, sweet, and healthy New Year,

Adam Mayer, President
Rabbi Ron Segal
Jack Feldman, Executive Director

 *Many outdoor events do not have a virtual option. Please visit the Temple Sinai calendar for information on program location and virtual access capabilities.
