New Protocols for Covid-19 Health and Safety – effective 22 November 2020
Whilst masks are no longer compulsory, we suggest that you wear one as it is difficult to be socially distant at a graveside service. You are still required to wear a mask inside.
The number of people attending the family meeting is recommended at 2 and we will ensure that these meetings take place in a large and open space.
Funerals are held at graveside and we will live stream as many as we can, limiting attendance at funerals to 150 people plus the Rabbi and staff. Cremations and indoor services are restricted to 20 people plus Rabbi and staff and we can live stream these services as well. Social distancing and personal hygiene will be strictly adhered to.
Please note it is mandatory for you to record your name and contact information using our QR code system or by paper record.
