In-Person Guidelines

June 4, 2021

Here are the latest guidelines as approved by the Temple Beth-El Board of Trustees:

In-Person Capacity - We are currently limiting in-person events, including services to 50 people.  This is approximately 25% capacity of the Sanctuary space.  Only the Sanctuary space, outdoor areas, and main floor bathrooms may be used at this time.

Masking - All attendees will be required to remain masked while in the building.  Speakers or service leaders may be unmasked as long as social distancing can be maintained.

Vaccinations or Proof of Negative COVID-19 Test - We strongly recommend that all attendees be vaccinated, if eligible.  All attendees are expected to be vaccinated or be tested for COVID-19 within 72 hours of attending an in-person event.

Social Distancing - All attendees must maintain a minimum of 6 feet distancing, unless sitting or standing with members of your household or pod.  Congregating before or after services is strongly discouraged indoors.

Food - Food will not be served until further notice.  Take-away bags may be provided for certain events.  Attendees must not eat while in the building.

Registration - Pre-registration is required for all in-person events.  All attendees must provide name and contact information in the event that contact tracing is required.  Sign-up sheets will be publicized on the Temple website, ( for in-person services and events.

Out of Town Guests - Attendees from out of the Ithaca area are welcome to attend in-person events and services at Temple Beth-El provided that they are vaccinated or have had a negative COVID-19 test within the last 72 hours.

Entrances - The Tioga St entrance will be used until further notice.  All doors to the building will remain locked.  The door by the ramp will be monitored by an usher for in-person events and services.
