Your safety, as well as the safety of our community and staff, is our primary concern. Outdoor services take place at 8 West 70th Street in our renovated lot ("Paved Paradise" or "Prayground") or in the event of rain on the Central Park West portico. Indoor services take place in the Main Sanctuary (which has been reinforced with increased ventilation and air purification).

We recognize that while working diligently to provide a safe environment, we can only ensure a safer environment, not a 100% safe one. No congregant is required to attend. Any congregant who wishes to participate will a) be asked to self-identify as meeting the criteria, b) may be subject to screening upon arrival, c) acknowledges and accepts the risks of attending the minyan; and d) will be waiving any possible claim of any kind against the Synagogue or any of its agents.

If you have been feeling unwell, have any symptoms of, or exposure to COVID-19 or may be at increased risk of spreading COVID-19, please do NOT attend. 

Our goal is to provide as safe an environment as possible for our community and trust that you will take all the necessary precautions for yourselves and our community. An absolute condition of attending our services is for all participants to affirm that they are symptom-free and that they will abide by all the rules and regulations. By attending our services or participating in our activities, you and your family are affirming all the procedures, requirements, and undertakings included on our registration forms. 


Submitting this form does not guarantee you a place at any particular minyan. Your submission will be evaluated and you will be notified by email if you have been approved to participate. Only those who have been approved in advance will be permitted to attend. We reserve the right to ask anyone not to enter, or to leave the service, for any reason, including if we believe that there is a chance they are ill or that your presence may pose a risk to yourself or others. If after you are approved, you begin to feel unwell or are not able to attend, please let us know right away so we can invite someone else and ensure there is a minyan.

Adult members of the same family are required to sign up individually. Please submit one form per person.

By completing this form, you agree to share your personal information and waive any claim or liability of any kind.

If you have any questions or need help completing the form, please contact info@shearithisrael.org.

Thank you for your cooperation.
