• If a minyan (10) of Jewish men are not available, MCK will ensure that there are 10 Jewish men in attendance.
• All Shtiebel services will be webstreamed, allowing everyone to participate remotely.
• Hand sanitiser will be available. 
• For advice regarding Minyan and Shiva etiquette, please refer to your Rabbi. 

Please be advised that while assisting families following the passing of a loved one (irrespective of the cause of passing) and bringing that person into our care, our Funeral Attendants may be wearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) as prescribed by The Victorian Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS ) to protect both families and ourselves during the current period of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) concerns.  

When attending a Funeral please be mindful of all the precautions and guidelines issued by Government and Communal bodies regarding public gatherings and social distancing. Obviously, please refrain from kissing, hugging and hand shaking mourners or other attendees. 

As a community service MCK will be offering all families free webstreaming of the Shtiebel service, allowing friends to particpate from home, rather than attending a large community gathering.
