About The In-Person Services

From the month of June onwards we will be holding in-person services every Sunday at the Ahavas Achim Synagogue in Newburyport at 10 AM (ET). Each service will be a hybrid event with the option to attend over Zoom for those who are unable to gather in-person. Those who just want to Zoom in to services can continue to use the Zoom link located near the bottom of this page. 
 
COVID-19 REGULATIONS - Because we will be gathering in person we all must abide by the regulations in effect for COVID-19. The MA DPH says that: "The Department of Public Health issued a public health advisory effective May 29 that advises all unvaccinated residents to continue to wear masks in indoor settings and when they can't socially distance." On Sundays we will observe these following rules: 

  1. If unvaccinated, you must wear a mask indoors.
  2. There will be absolutely no shaming of people wearing masks.
  3. Anyone desiring a hug, must ask permission first.

The address of the Ahavas Achim Synagogue is 53 1/2 Washington St, Newburyport, MA 01950.
