Ritual Policy

Head Coverings, Tallit, & the Bimah

It is traditionally considered a sign of respect for anyone in a synagogue to wear a kippah (yarmulke, in Yiddish). We encourage everyone in the sanctuary to wear a head covering, although as a Reform Jewish congregation it is not mandatory.  However, all participants in the Torah service on the bimah must wear both a kippah and tallit as a sign of respect.  A ready supply of both are in the sanctuary if you are offered the honor of handling or blessing Torah.  Thank you for your cooperation.
