Please click here to register for a minyan and for cycle three guidelines. Our third cycle continues this week.
Shabbat minyanim - Participants must reregister each week for Shabbat-only minyanim. Registration begins Motzei Shabbat.
Some of the outdoor minyanim on the Shul campus are now taking place under the tent.
Note From Rabbi Baum - Thank You, Patience and Wear Masks, Communal Wide Youth Program
I want to express my gratitude to the CSS and the hosts and captains of all Keter Torah-sanctioned minyanim, for their help in making what we hope will be a transition back to Shul run as smoothly as possible. Thank you to all of the participants of these minyanim for their phenomenal level of compliance. We are continuing with different styles of minyanim, some with Torah reading and some without. Some are paced a bit faster, and some are a little slower. At this point, with the increasing number of participants and their excellent compliance, you can try out a different minyan, but only if participants are registered and agree to comply with all the guidelines. I have great respect for the people who are not yet ready to join a minyan, whether for medical or other reasons. We miss you, and enjoy connecting with you in many other ways. Everyone knows that it is now the law in the State of New Jersey to wear a mask when it is not possible to be socially distant. Please be part of the solution, and not, r"l, a super spreader of this humbling virus. While there is a mitzvah to "love your neighbor as you love yourself," Rav Shlomo Wolbe explained that we must all make ourselves lovable as well. Wearing a mask in public is not a sign of weakness, but is in many situations a halachic requirement, to preserve lives and make us lovable as individuals and as a community to our friends and to the broader Jewish and non-Jewish society. I would also like to thank Adina Kastner for building on our community outreach efforts with her creative program being offered to the entire Teaneck-wide community. See the flyer below.
