Visiting the Sanctuary

We will be reserving ten-minute time-slots to visit the Faye Rubenstein Weiss Sanctuary on weekdays between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, for a moment of prayer and reflection on the bimah before the ark. Each time-slot will be reserved for a single household unit.

The appointments will be spaced during that week, and must be made in advance to assure everyone’s safety and health.

All appointments will be between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday – Thursday, and between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Friday, September 21-25, as well as 6:00-8:00 p.m. Monday and Wednesday.

We will ask that you arrive on time, please.

While in the building, all COVID-19 building rules apply, including entry contact less temperature taking, logging entry and exit times, mask wearing at all times while in the building, and physical distancing of six feet or more from others not in your household.

To sign up, please contact Tika, our receptionist, at Receptionist@BethShalomPgh.org, or 412‑421-2288 x114.
