Under the guidance of our Infectious Disease specialists, we made upgrades to our ventilation and filtration systems to make sure our physical space is safe to use. See a schedule of services here.  Per Bais Abraham policy, all individuals attending in-person services and activities must be fully vaccinated, including a booster for those who are eligible. It is recommended that people wear high filtration masks (N95, KN95, or KN94 standards) or double mask with a cloth mask over a surgical mask. See here for an infographic on masking from the medical advisory committee and here for a letter from Rabbi Silberstein.

"Bais Abe" is a warm, welcoming, inclusive modern Orthodox synagogue led by Rabbi Garth Silberstein located in the University City area of St. Louis, close to Washington University. The community combines observance, passionate prayer and deep Torah study with creativity, openness and activism. Surrounded by stately, quiet neighborhoods and adjacent to the Delmar Loop, one of the most exciting urban oases in the country, Bais Abe is the perfect balance of urban energy and suburban calm. Individuals and families of all backgrounds and levels of observance are welcome.  For more information on upcoming events click HERE.
