Announcements & Times

Services at Beth Jacob

Alameda County now requires masking of all individuals indoors in public spaces. Therefore, all individuals must be masked indoors while on the Beth Jacob campus.


We will continue to host Kiddush outdoors.

We encourage members who need to take a “mask break” to do so; women may step into the yard and men can exit the building by the side door near the small sanctuary.

We will continue to have limited seating available in the yard for people who prefer to maintain more social distance.

The balcony will be open and restricted to fully vaccinated, masked individuals only.
