REGULAR IN-PERSON services at beth jacob 


In-person services continue at Beth Jacob.  We thank you for your patience and co-operation as we work to keep everyone as safe as possible. 

Pre-registration no longer required. Please come and attend our services in person.

  • We ask everyone who attends: if you have any fever or signs of illness, please stay home
  • Siddur and Chumash will be available for your use should you require them.  
  • Kippah are now available on site, and you are welcome to store your tallit at Beth Jacob
  • Children of all ages are welcome, but we ask that parents continue to supervise their children under the age of 12
  • All attendees over the age of 2 will be asked to wear a mask that covers mouth and nose before entry of the building and during the entire duration of services.  (This does not apply to those who are unable to wear a face covering due to medical condition or disability)
    Adult sized masks will be available at the shul but we regret we do not have any child-sized masks.
  • All entrants to the building are asked to use hand sanitizer (provided throughout the building) immediately upon entry

Please be patient as we are working hard to continue to offer in-person services.  Beth Jacob remains committed to following the guidelines and protocols as issued from our federal, provincial, regional and municipal authorities and public health experts.  We will all need to work together to safely remain open.
