Thank you for being patient and prayerful as we navigate the ongoing pandemic and determine the most loving ways to "know, love and care for" those in our community with the help of our COVID-19 task force, which includes doctors and staff members.

In-person Tracing Numbers

For the week of Sunday, Aug 7, number of communicated positive cases*:

  • At Ethical Culture: 0
  • At the YMCA: 0

*According to the NY DOH, individuals with COVID-19 may be infectious up to 2 days before symptom onset or their positive test. Only congregants who attended worship while potentially infectious are included in this weekly count.

Contact Tracing

If you develop symptoms or test positive on Sunday (the day of service) or Monday or Tuesday (after the service), please notify us by emailing [email protected]


    • At Ethical Culture: While masks are no longer required while in the Auditorium or Social Hall (downstairs), the venue has asked us to wear masks when entering and exiting the building, while congregated in the lobby, and while downstairs in the restroom areas.
    • At the YMCA: Masks are optional.

    Balcony Seating

    The balcony is available for those who'd prefer to social distance and wear masks.

    Free COVID-19 Tests

    Ethical Culture has received a number of COVID-19 tests from the city and has generously gifted some to us. If you would like to have a few, you can ask an usher on Sunday morning, and they can help you get them. If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected]

    LSQ Kids

    LSQ Kids programming for babies through 6th graders has resumed at the YMCA (next door to Ethical Culture). Learn more about LSQ Kids, or email questions to [email protected]


    If you aren't quite ready to attend worship at Ethical Culture, we understand and invite you to join us for Sunday worship each week on YouTube. Our service begins at 10:30 a.m.

    Note: Starting with the service on Sunday, Sep 11, we will be implementing a registration page in order to better "know, love and care for" those who join us via livestream. The registration page will be available, starting Tuesday, Sep 6. If you have any questions, please email [email protected]


    If you have any questions, review our FAQ or email [email protected]
