Congregation Sha’ar Zahav Fragrance-Free

Categories: Uncategorized

In order to support Sha’ar Zahav attendees who are physically harmed when exposed to chemical fragrances (difficulty breathing, migraines, flu-like symptoms), please do your best to follow these guidelines when you visit our synagogue building:

  • Refrain from wearing perfume/cologne
  • Check your various products to see if there is a fragrance free version available
  • Switch to fragrance-free laundry detergent and softener
