To all members of OE:

Note: All indoor shacharis minyanim start with Brachos. Outdoor minyanim start with Yishtabach.

We realize that some people are advised not to enter the building or do not wish to do so at this point and therefore will be having minyanim both inside and outside. In keeping with Governor Murphy’s latest executive order, we will be increasing the number of attendees allowed at each minyan. 

While we are very happy to be able to use our building again, we are aware that there are those who are uncomfortable or unable to attend. Please realize that there is no obligation to attend and that your health, safety and wellbeing are paramount.
NOTE: In order to provide adequate ventilation, the shul will be kept cooler than usual. Please prepare accordingly.
The following is our schedule for minyanim for This week:

Shacharit minyanim will begin with Yishtabach - please daven up to that point at home.

Minyanim will be run expeditiously. Everybody is asked to leave immediately so that we can prepare for the next minyan. DO NOT GATHER INSIDE OR OUTSIDE OF THE BUILDING!

Please read this entire message before signing up to attend a minyan. 
We are sorry and apologize but NO children under 13 will be able to attend minyanim at this time, due to limited space and conditions that would not allow us to accommodate them at this time.
