Vaccine Policies

GENERAL VACCINE POLICY

It is the policy of Tifereth Israel to strongly encourage vaccination against vaccine-preventable illnesses, through signage, notifications, and educational efforts. Particular focus should be on seasonal flu and, as appropriate, requirements may be added to address public health emergencies.

Further, it continues to be TI’s policy that every student who attends the Himmelfarb school shall present documentation of vaccination in accordance with D.C. law before their enrollment in the Himmelfarb school can be confirmed.

Approved 3/14/2022 by the TI Board of Directors


COVID-19 VACCINE POLICY 

We require everyone attending services or other events in-person to pre-register and to provide proof of up-to-date vaccination (including boosters to the extent eligible). This includes service leaders, greeters, shomrim, and anyone else with a role in services. 

We also require everyone inside the building to wear a mask, with limited exceptions, such as when delivering a drash, leading part of the service, or while eating. Our goal is to keep Covid out of our community to the extent possible. 

And finally, if you are not feeling well or develop symptoms after you have registered to attend, or you have been exposed to someone who is infected since registering, please stay home. Get tested and, if you test positive, please don’t come to the synagogue for 10 days. 

If you attend services and subsequently develop symptoms or find out you have been exposed to someone who is infected, please notify Rabbi Werbow right away.
