Shabbat services

Shabbat shalom!

You are invited to join us for Shabbat worship in one of two ways: Participating (through this link) or watching (see below for instructions).  Services begin at 7:30pm. On the last Friday of the month, our service begins at 6pm. (Make sure to bring your instruments.)

Friday, March 5th, 7:30pm - HIAS Shabbat - Join us as we think about the Jewish commitment to refugees, with special guest speakers from our local refugee organization, RAP.

Friday, March 12th, 7:30pm - Our service will be led by our 6th grade class.

Saturday morning worship

Our next B'nei Mitzvah led service will be on March 20th at 10am as Elissa Steingart celebrates becoming Bat Mitzvah by leading us in prayer and teaching from the Torah.  Follow this link or watch below. 

Welcoming Shabbat

This early Kabbalat Shabbat takes place one Friday per month from 1-2pm. This service is led by Rabbi Abraham for those who would like to attend a Shabbat Service, but are unable to get to the Temple at 7:30pm. Even though you can now join services by Zoom or YouTube, we are continuing this afternoon gathering. We will share some prayers, including the Mourners' Kaddish, some singing, and some Torah study/discussion.  The link is here. The next date is March 19, 2021.

For all services:

1) Watch - through the embedded YouTube viewer below you can watch the service that is being led remotely.  No one can see you, nor can the service leaders hear your participation, or see your comments in real time.  (The link should be live by a few minutes before the service. If the link is not working for you, try refreshing your screen, or closing your browser and re-opening it.)

2) Participate - You have the option to be seen by the other participants (and on the YouTube above, through the non-publicized link), to see who else is on the Zoom part of the service, and to participate when invited.

Join - Follow the Zoom link (in blue above for the service you wish to join). Even if you have never used Zoom, you can use this link on a computer, tablet, or smartphone. Agree to the download and a window will open.  We ask you to stay muted through most of the service (Not only are background noises distracting, but it will make your video move to the featured position, instead of the service leaders.) 

View - You should have the choice of gallery (graphic of nine squares in a square formation) or speaker view.  Gallery gives you a "Brady Bunch" arrangement of many of the participants. Speaker view gives you a row of participants with the speaker featured in a larger square.  We recommend speaker view for the service. At times during the service, we will post slides with the prayers  At that time, the windows of participants will shrink to the side or top of your screen.

Chat - You can also chat with other participants through the chat feature - with all participants, or with specific ones in the pulldown tab.  Be careful which you select.  The service leaders may not be able to check messages sent to them during the service.

Video - You can toggle between being seen by others or not, with the video icon in the Zoom window.  It is usually next to the microphone icon that toggles whether you are heard or muted.

Shabbat shalom to all.
