Our Bayit is blessed with a beautiful playground.  Especially during this pandemic time, the opportunity to have a personal and quiet space for children to play makes such a difference.  After consultation with our Reopening Committee, we are pleased to be able to open our Bayit playground for use on a sign-up basis, one household at a time.
45 minute slots beginning on the hour will be available Sunday-Friday, 9am-5pm.  Signups for the following week will open the previous Thursday around midday - check back here or on the Bayit homepage.

Please fill out the form below to choose your slot, and please enjoy your time on the Bayit playground. A few important safety notes:
  • The playground use is for one household per slot, along with the child(ren)'s caregiver(s).
  • Access to the playground is through the HIR driveway and the locked gate to the left.  Access codes will be provided via a Whatsapp group you will be added to after signup.
  • Please adhere to the schedule so the next household is not left waiting outside. We know it takes a few minutes to get children packed up and willing to leave, so please build in some wiggle room.
  • Snack consumption is allowed at this time (update as of 8/26).  Please remember to clean up after yourself!  The bathroom will not be open for use.
  • The playground is not being disinfected between each family.  Please make sure you and your children are washing/sanitizing your hands regularly. Please consider wiping down the surfaces your child touches most. 
  • If anyone in your family develops any illness or symptoms please be courteous and stay home.  If anyone develops illness after use, please notify the Bayit immediately.
  • While mask wearing is not required during playground use (one of the benefits of single-household sign-up slots), please bring masks for all adults and 3+ year old children for the walk to and from the playground and in case of encountering Bayit staff.

Thank you!  We look forward to welcoming children back for play!  More opportunities for children in the Bayit will follow!



1) At this time and to the best of my knowledge no one in our household has been exposed to someone with a positive lab test for Covid-19 in the past 14 days.

2) No one in our household currently has a fever over 100 degrees or unexplained symptoms such as loss of taste or smell, difficulty breathing, coughing, headaches or gastrointestinal difficulties.

3) If anyone in our household develops symptoms or find out they have been exposed to someone with Covid-19 I will let the Bayit office know as soon as possible and will cancel our reservation for the playground
We do not require the individuals in your group to wear masks while you are alone in the Bayit's playground.

We do ask that you bring a mask for entering and exiting the building and while interacting with any Bayit staff or other members.
I understand that attending any prayer service, class or other program at the Bayit  or using the facilities of the synagogue is my choice. I therefore release Hebrew Institute of University Heights, dba Hebrew Institute of Riverdale from any and all liability for any unintentional exposure to viral or bacterial infection.
