As vaccination rates continue to increase – City of Houston guidelines and our medical advisers have given us the ability to expand the number of in-person participants for services.  Registration is only required for our Friday night Shabbat Renewal service - space is limited and reserved for members.
In addition, our daily J.B. Greenfield Chapel service is also open to members with no registration required.
Masking and social distanced seating are all still required. We look forward to seeing you back at Beth Yeshurun!

Live Streaming at Congregation Beth Yeshurun is provided through the generosity of an anonymous family as well as Nancy and Arthur Brand and family and Gilda and Warren Sprung and family in memory of their parents, A. I. and Manet Schepps and Allen Brand.
