Vaccination Policy (Updated April 28, 2022)
For the safety of our members, clergy and staff, Adath Israel created its vaccination policy for guests visiting in person and staff working in our building. This was developed in consultation with our Medical Advisory Committee and will be re-assessed throughout the summer. We currently define FULL VACCINATION as two Health Canada approved doses.
- All staff, members & visitors 5+ must be FULLY VACCINATED (at least 14 days prior to attending).
- The only exception will be for small private events where there is no interaction with other members or visitors (Eg. Havdalah service on a Saturday evening).
- Registration will be required and a negative rapid antigen test is to be presented 24 hours in advance.
- Children under 5 DO NOT REQUIRE vaccinations but must be accompanied by parents inside the shul and of course, must wear a mask and be symptom-free.
Proof of Vaccination:
- Our Medical Advisory Committee will continue to require that all entrants to the building be vaccinated as per our policy out of an abundance of caution to optimize protection of our most vulnerable participants.
- This policy will be re-assessed again in mid-July.
- Synagogue, tenant, and catering staff will be required to provide proof of vaccination.
- Out of respect for Shabbat, we request those participating in services whose names are not already tagged in our vaccine database on ShulCloud to please bring a hard copy of their proof of vaccination.
- Accommodations are possible for those unable to provide a hard copy.
- Please contact the synagogue office for more information
