We are a diverse and inclusive Jewish community of full and part-time residents.
We believe there are many routes to meaningful Jewish experiences and this
philosophy is reflected in our name - Netivot Torah - which means "pathways to Torah."

We've Reopened! Welcome Back!

 
Our Shabbat services are open for all vaccinated and masked attendees. We will also continue to use Zoom to bring services to those who can’t attend in-person, or who have not yet been vaccinated.

In light of the rapid rise and increased contagiousness of the Delta variant, as well as an increasing number of break-through infections of vaccinated people and the fact that, with the Delta variant, even vaccinated people who become infected can easily spread the infection, we feel that proof of vaccination and continued mask-wearing are necessary to keep our community safe. To monitor the number of new infections and hospitalizations in Columbia County, you can check Columbia County COVID data, posted daily at https://www.columbiacountynyhealth.com/home/coronavirus-covid-19-daily-updates.

Please Note: if you’d like to join us in-person we request that, if you’re able, you scan your vaccination card or your New York State Excelsior Pass* and email a copy to Ken Kranz at barken1993@gmail.com. If you don’t get a confirmation that your email was received, email it to thechathamsynagogue@gmail.com. If you’re not able to scan and email your vaccination card or Excelsior Pass, we will have someone at the door checking vaccination proof so you can bring your vaccination card or a paper or digital copy of your Excelsior pass with you. Mask wearing is mandatory.

We hope to see you at our upcoming Shabbat services and events.

*The Excelsior Pass is New York State’s digital proof of a COVID-19 vaccination. Passes can be stored on your smartphone or printed out. You can get your Excelsior Pass at: https://covid19vaccine.health.ny.gov/excelsior-pass
