CAI's Vaccination Policy

Throughout the pandemic our first priority has been the health and safety of the entire congregation. Given the uncertainty of the COVID-19 crisis, we want to continue to ensure that we gather in a manner that is safe and responsible. After consulting with our medical advisors, the CAI Reopening Task Force has approved the following protocols for Shabbat morning services, B’nai Mitzvot, and other programs/religious services which take place inside of CAI’s building:

Proof of Vaccination
As of October 1, 2021, proof of full vaccination
 is required for everyone 12 years and older when entering the building. 
As of May 22, 2022 full vaccination is required for ages 5 and up. “Full vaccination” means having completed an initial course of one of the three widely recognized and approved vaccines (Moderna, Pfizer, and Johnson & Johnson), plus a booster shot for those eligible.

You may show your vaccination card or an official vaccination registry (such as Docket) at the door as proof. Additionally, proof of vaccination can be documented with CAI through the form below. If you already uploaded your proof of vaccination, please resubmit with proof of booster shots as soon as possible. Once your upload is complete, vaccination documentation for each entry into the building will not be necessary. Negative PCR, or other negative COVID tests are NOT an acceptable alternative to vaccination documentation.

For programs, such as afternoon B’nai Mitzvot, that do not have a security guard or volunteer at the door, it is the responsibility of the host or program organizer (B’nai Mitzvah family) to confirm that all attendees are vaccinated and attest that they obtained proof from all eligible parties.
As of Saturday, March 19, masks will be optional for all services and synagogue activities. This does not include the Early Childhood Center or Religious School.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in implementing these policies and procedures. The CAI community has successfully navigated the changing parameters of the pandemic to ensure that we can maintain our connections and remain healthy. We are hopeful that these guidelines will continue to achieve this goal.

Please read the following information carefully.

All individuals ages 12 and older who are planning to attend services at Congregation Agudath Israel, must be fully vaccinated and show proof of vaccination in advance of entering the building. Children under the age of 12 may attend services but must remain masked. Masks are required for all individuals over the age of 2.

People are considered fully vaccinated: Two weeks after their second dose in a two-dose series, either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or four weeks after a single-dose vaccine, Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine. No other form of COVID-19 prevention treatment will be accepted.

Please submit the form at least by the Thursday before the Shabbat you are attending. You only need to submit the form once. Please be sure to complete all relevant information and click "submit" at the bottom of the page. You will receive a confirmation email to tell you your submission was successful.

This registry is being used as proof of vaccination for entry into Congregation Agudath Israel and personal information will not be used for any other purpose.

Proof of vaccination may also be shown in person prior to entering the building. Thank you for helping to keep our community healthy and safe!
