COVID-19 Protocols: In order to keep the community safe during this

time, we are going to be requiring proof of vaccination against

COVID-19. This means having been fully vaccinated (receiving a second

dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or first dose of the J & J

vaccine at least two weeks prior to dancing). You can either bring

your vaccination card or a picture of your card to dancing - we will

not record any information from the card, just note that you have

received the vaccination. Additionally, we will not be requiring

dancers to wear masks, though we certainly respect the comfort of

those who choose to. Each dancer will need to sign a waiver as well

(extra copies will be available at the session).


Masking Policy: While we're not requiring masks at this time, please
keep in mind that the CDC is currently recommending that vaccinated
people wear masks indoors in Norfolk County (including Brookline).
If you have any COVID-like symptoms (headache, fever, cough,
shortness of breath, loss of smell, etc.) please wait until you have a
negative PCR test before dancing with us again.


Rikud Revi'i (Wednesday night Israeli Dancing session) is operated by

Greater Boston Israeli Dance, Inc., a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit

organization. We are a 100-percent volunteer organization; every

penny we receive in admissions & donations is used to keep the

session going!
