Today @ CSZ

Congregation Shaarey Zedek is more than a place of worship, it is also home, family and community. Please keep in mind that we are here for you, and we are available through multiple points of contact. Please reach out to us if you need anything!

For outdoor, in-person gatherings: in case of inclement weather, program changes or cancellations will be made by directly contacting those who have registered for the events, and by posting updates on social media.

Please note that the synagogue is open only for services and events through advance registration, or any regular business by appointment. Health safety protocols are in effect across the CSZ campus, including required mask use and appropriate distancing.

Other Information:

– For in-person events on the CSZ campus, we want our members to know that we recognize not everyone is ready to travel or to attend events and services with others. We are attempting to maintain as much flexibility as we can, and offer as many options as we can, both for our variable weather, and for proximity.

We also want to assure everyone that safety on the CSZ campus is our first priority. To that end, we are sharing with you the guidelines for participation created by our Officers and Building Readiness Task Force. We call those guidelines the Ten Covid Commandments.
