THOI Services and updated Mask Policy (10/01/2022)

Shabbat services are offered both in person and virtually. To abide by the Jewish values for safeguarding the lives and health of all in our community, THOI kindly requests that ALL persons attending in-person services or activities be vaccinated.

As of October 1, 2022, masks are encouraged but not required. While masking remains the remains the most effective means to reduce transmission of the virus, THOI also respects the individual choices of our members and their judgment of personal risk acceptance. Members should feel comfortable wearing or not wearing a mask as they choose. Masks are available at the door if you would like to wear one.

THOI’s Board of Directors will periodically review the current policy to assess if conditions, such as community transmission levels and/or new variants, warrant any changes.
