Shabbos Afternoon Youth Groups

Shabbos Afternoon Youth Groups are back on a limited scale. There are 3 separate groups, limited to 12 participants each. Rabbi Bloom's class for Boys ages 9-14 now takes place during Parent/Child learning. A separate registration is required for each child. Deadline is Friday at noon.

IMPORTANT: In-Person Minyanim

As of November 14, 2020, due to San Diego being in California's "purple tier," all services have moved outside for a minimum of 3 weeks.

We are no longer requiring pre-registration for in-person minyanim. However, masks are required and everyone will be seated at least 6-feet apart. No one should attend if they have been out of the country within the last 14-days, recently been in close contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19, nor if they have any of the following symptoms:

Fever or chills, Cough, Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, Fatigue, Muscle or body aches, Headache, New loss of taste or smell, Sore throat, Congestion or runny nose, Nausea or vomiting, Diarrhea.

By State and County orders, we are now allowed to hold services indoors with a maximum of 25% of capacity or 100 people; whichever is less. As such, our minyanim are being held in the Social Hall. Seating is available outside on the patio for those wishing to be outdoors, yet still be part of the minyan.

Our welcoming community, of some one hundred fifty plus families, consists of many Shomer Shabbos, Shomer Mitzvos families as well as those that are less observant.

A few unique features of the synagogue are: a large Beit Medrash program; bi-weekly Lunch and Learn classes; a community Kelim and Women's mikvah; singles programs; lifecycle and family education; adult and youth enrichment programs; communal holiday gatherings, scholar in residence programs and daily programs for older adults, Monday through Friday.
