Security & Visitation Procedures

Given the current situation and heightened risk to our community, we ask that everyone carefully follow our security and building entry/exit procedures.

If you plan to visit the Shul:
Please call the office ahead of time at: 910-762-1117 to let us know when you plan to come.

When entering the building:
Please do NOT let anyone you do not know walk in behind you. They must ring the doorbell and be granted access.

If you plan on bringing a friend or visitor to services: 
Call the office ahead of time to let us know so that we can have them on our pre-approved visitor list for services that day.

We continue to prioritize the safety and well-being of all our congregants and visitors, and we thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.


 

We are Bnai Israel: A Diverse Community
