Effective Friday, October 22, 2021, with the Town of West Hartford no longer considered an area of "high transmission" for COVID-19, and their eliminating the mask mandate, the Young Israel of West Hartford mask policy will be updated as follows: 

  • Indoors - Masks will be optional for all those fully vaccinated or who have recovered from COVID-19 in the last 6 months. Masks are required for children under the age of 12 or those who are unvaccinated and have not recently recovered from COVID-19. Children who cannot wear a mask should not be brought indoors.
  • Outdoors –Masks are optional for all attendees.

  • The A/C will continue to be switched to ON to enable constant air flow and filtration.
  • Outdoor minyanim will be held at the discretion of the President, Rabbi Brander and Gabbaim.

We anticipate further updates to our protocols in the near future, so please make sure to look for Young Israel of West Hartford emails. Thank you for your continued patience during this time. We are all anxious to see an end to restrictions of any kind.

We understand that real life scenarios do not always line up with written guidelines and that a measure of common medical sense can be incorporated into each situation. As such, we have set up a system to discuss questions and individual circumstances. Please email and a member of COVID-19 Medical Committee will be in touch.
