Frequently Asked Questions

Who can attend in-person services?
Our services are open to everyone aged over 12 years old that is double vaccinated.

May children attend?
Yes, children who are not yet eligible to be vaccinated are welcome to attend with a parent or guardian.

If I am eligible to be vaccinated but have chosen not to, may I attend in-person services?
No, you are welcome to join us online only.

Do I have to wear a mask?
No, mask-wearing is no longer mandatory. We encourage mask-wearing in high-traffic areas where social distancing may not be possible. TBI will have disposable masks available.

How does it work on the day?
After you clear security, you will need to check-in and show our Covid marshalls your proof of vaccination.

How to show proof of vaccination?
The easiest way to show proof of vaccination is to link your COVID-19 digital certificate with the Service Victoria app and show it at check-in. We understand that not everyone has a smartphone, so the Victorian Government has published a guide to proof of vaccination. Please ensure you are prepared as our Covid marshalls will not be there to help you link your digital certificate, only to sight it.

Will there be a communal kiddush?
Yes, we will be hosting a communal kiddush on Saturdays every week in the Friedlander and Courtyard.

Will there be any kiddush on Friday nights?
Yes, challah, wine and grape juice will be served.

What happens if I forget my phone at home and cannot check-in?
We will have a sign-in sheet, but if you do not hold proof of your vaccination you will be denied entry by the Covid marshall. This is applicable in all circumstances including previous synagogue attendance, so please ensure you have all the relevant resources with you.

Additional Information:
Everyone including TBI staff, volunteers, caterers, security personnel, and guests will need to check-in at the Covid marshall checkpoint outside the synagogue foyer. There will be no entry into the building via the office and appropriate signage will be present so please make note if you are parking in the car park.
