Parshas Nitzavim Vayelekh
A brief note on minyanim:
Please be reminded that seating is first-come, first-served in the designated seats, and there is a small possibility that we may have to turn people away at the door.
Please feel free to attend any minyan in the shul--- and if you are comfortable attending shul, please make the effort to support our minyanim.
Everyone must be masked while in the shul or in the outdoor minyan, and sit in any of the designated, socially distanced seats in the main sanctuary.

Instructions for Those Davening at Home
Friday Night: Omit Borchu. After Shemoneh Esreh of Maariv, do not recite the section following Vayechulu.
Shabbos Day: Omit Borchu. We do not recite any of the Sefer Torah service or Yekum Purkan but proceed directly to Av HaRachamim, Ashrei, and Shemoneh Esreh of Mussaf. While one is not required to read the Torah readings from a Chumash in private, it is a worthy action.
We add Le-David (Psalm 27) after Shacharis and Maariv.
There is no personal obligation to blow the shofar during Elul, but if one so chooses, it does not require a minyan.
Selichos can be recited from home without Hashem, Hashem, which requires a minyan. That section can be recited privately if you use the trop. Please contact the office if you would like to borrow Selichos book.
