Beth Shalom: Welcome Home
Beth Shalom is home for the Jews and their families in Central and South-West Montana.
Beth Shalom is where we pray, learn and grow together, where we show up for each other, and where we co-create sacredness.
Beth Shalom is where we are welcome to come as who we are and are encouraged to bring in all our gifts.
Beth Shalom is a member of the URJ, the Union of Reform Judaism in North America.
Beth Shalom is on a journey together with all of its members. The following guidelines might change from month to month while we continue to adapt to the pandemic in ways that will keep all of us as safe as possible, as connected as possible, and as joyful as possible.
Please always wear a mask once you enter the synagogue for meetings, services, or Torah study. If you wish to make a change to this policy, you need to make sure that everyone present is absolutely comfortable with the respective change.
We decided that there will be no congregational singing inside any building until summer 2022. Prayers will be led by the rabbi and Amber Ikeman. This is a hard decision, but one that seems to be necessary to ensure our safety.
If you are immunocompromised: Please contact email@example.com to help us find out what we as a community can do to make you as safe as possible.
We strongly encourage you to get vaccinated before you enter our shared spaces. While we do not ask to see your vaccination records, for the sake of pikuach nefesh (“the protection of life”) and in order to protect especially our elderly and immunocompromised members from a COVID infection, we support vaccinations as a means to slow down the mutation process and to lower the risk of possible infection and transmission.
If you are not vaccinated and you have been exposed to other people, please take a COVID Quick Test before you come to synagogue. Tests are available here, or at the synagogue (please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to make sure we have a test kit waiting for you). We want to make sure that you can be in the know and stay home in case your test is positive.
If you are a kid under 2 years old: The synagogue welcomes you back, with or without mask. If you are older than 2 years: Please also wear your mask with pride :)
Please, by all means, contact email@example.com in case you have questions, concerns, or ideas or how we should move forward.
