We are pleased that OC will be able to resume services this week at BJE in a safe and responsible way!

In accordance with current NSW Health rules designed to protect the health of the whole community, we will only be able to permit fully vaccinated people aged 16 or over and unvaccinated children under 16 to enter shul. People who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons will need to show their NSW Health medical contraindication certificate to the President, Dr Jonathan Erlich by 8pm Wednesday for consideration.

Pre-registration to attend shul remains essential and all Covid-safe rules remain in place. To streamline our entry protocol and demonstrate to the authorities (if necessary) compliance with all relevant rules, please email a copy of your COVID-19 vaccination certificate to You can do this at any time. If you do not wish to email your certificate, you can email us and we will arrange an alternative to sight your certificate. We do not plan to keep copies of certificates; vaccination status we will be recorded on a shul register, and certificates immediately deleted. To ease the process of returning to regular services we really encourage you to help the shul by doing this asap.

NSW Health requires everyone carry their COVID-19 vaccination certificate for verification purposes and to show NSW police if requested. On Shabbat you need to carry a printed copy of your certificate with you at all times. While you can show your certificate to the person at the door to be admitted, it is preferrable to have done so in advance.

Space at the BJE inside will be limited. We will be able to continue to use both inside and outside undercover seating. If you are planning to attend any Shabbat services, please email your COVID-19 vaccination certificate as above and complete the registration form by Friday at 9am.  

If you have been at all unwell please do not attend. Attendees will be asked standard NSW Department of Health questions as a condition of entry. Hand sanitiser will be available for use. Please adhere to social distancing at all times.

"I have a liking for pioneers, for experimenters, for people who do not follow the crowd. I have always admired the first ones, the early ones, the beginners, the originators. Even in my derashot I prefer to speak about those who defied public opinion, disregarded mockery and ridicule, and blazed new trails leading man to God"​ - Rabbi J B Soloveitchik
