Great News for Our Beth Chaim Community!
Now that Contra Costa County is in the orange tier, Beth Chaim is able to both expand our outdoor use and offer indoor events!
Many of our Beth Chaim members have expressed a desire to attend in-person events. Being in the orange tier means that we now have the option to utilize our building for Rosh Chodesh, Sisterhood, Brotherhood, Mah Jongg, or any other small indoor event that you may wish to plan that does not involve singing or chanting.
Results of a religious school survey found that our families would like to finish the school year with a hybrid model of our online programming, and in-person events. We can't wait to see our children back at Beth Chaim!
We are truly excited to welcome our members back into our beautiful space! Governor Newsom has announced the probable end of restrictions and colored tiers on June 15. Accordingly, we look forward to scheduling larger in-person events at Beth Chaim this summer and fall, including a very special musical event. Additionally, we hope to resume in-person religious services and our High Holy Days services indoors.
A few more details ….
- Use of face coverings and distancing is still mandatory indoors and outdoors.
- Eating and drinking is not allowed indoors. We do have the option for onegs and other meals outdoors, however our kitchen is not yet available for use. Food may be brought in from outside sources, keeping in mind that meals may not be buffet style, but rather pre-packaged items for each individual.
- Until further notice, Beth Chaim will not have indoor religious services as the County continues to discourage singing and chanting of congregants for any indoor events.
Looking forward to seeing you soon in person!
