Welcome to Congregation Beth Shalom! While we are all dealing the pandemic, we are committed to remaining connected as a community. Reach out to us and we will continue to stay in touch with you. For the time being, we will connect online, and we know that in the near future we will celebrate as a Jewish community in person.
We are grateful to all who joined us for our online High Holiday services. Check out Yellowstone Public Radio's article about our services, featuring comments from our Board Member Randi Levin and Rabbi Kula.
Operating Protocols as of May 13, 2020, revisited October 1, 2020
- The temple plans to continue virtual services and events for the foreseeable future under Phase 1 and 2 of the Governor’s reopening plans. This policy will be re-evaluated as the situation evolves.
- Staff is permitted to work in the temple building, or continue to work remotely, as they deem appropriate.
- Usage of the building by affiliates is to be limited. If an affiliate needs to use the building to meet with staff or to conduct other temple business, they must obtain prior authorization from Rabbi Mark Kula or Lisa Roots. No more than 10 people may be present in the temple at any given time, and 6 feet of social distance must be maintained between each person. We also require the use of facial masks if any individuals plan to interact in-person with other individuals while in the temple building.
- Lisa Roots is maintaining a Google Doc to track the plans and actions of any building users. If anyone plans to go to the temple, they should obtain the requisite authorization and contact Lisa Roots at 406-556-0528 or firstname.lastname@example.org to let Lisa know when they will be there, and what areas of the temple they plan to utilize. Cleaning supplies are available in the foyer of the temple. Immediately prior to exiting the temple, the building user (or the last building user if a group of 10 or less is present) should disinfect any surfaces that they touched during their visit, and use a wipe or paper towel sprayed with disinfectant to open the door to exit the building. Upon exiting, the building user should confirm to Lisa that this cleaning was done.
