Shabbat services

Shabbat shalom!

Friday Evening Shabbat Services

You are invited to join us for Shabbat worship in one of three ways: Participating onsite in our sanctuary, connecting online via Zoom through this link, or watching the live stream (see below for instructions). 

Friday Shabbat services begin at 7:30pm. On the last Friday of the month, our service begins at 6pm. (If you are worshipping from home, make sure to bring your instruments.) 

Masking is optional for all present in the building. Congregants who are symptomatic, or who have been exposed to COVID, should remain at home and participate in services on-line. Congregants are encouraged to act according to their own decisions regarding in-person attendance at services. We ask that you take into account the health of all the members of our community, and act with care and compassion.  We will continue to offer all services on-line as well as in-person.

 

Friday, September 23rd, 7:30pm - Rosh haShanah is almost upon us.  Join us for the last Shabbat of 5782, as we prepare for Rosh haShanah which begins on Sunday evening. Parshat Nitzavim

Friday, September 30th, 6pm - Sunset Kabbalat Shabbat Shuvah (Nosh at 5:30) - Our monthly early service. We'll provide the instruments, if you join us in the sanctuary. If you are at home, you'll need to supply your own. This Shabbat is part of the ten days of repentance, between Rosh haShanah and Yom Kippur and is therfore called Shabbat Shuvah - the Shabbat of return. Parshat Vayeilech

Saturday Morning Shabbat Worship - 10am

The Fall B'nai Mitzvah schedule (5783) will begin with Addison Bornstein on October 8th, finishing up for her class. The new class will begin with Benjamin Lipsky on October 22nd. You can join us by clicking on this link.

 

Online instructions for all services:
1) Connect and participate - You have the option to be seen by the other participants (and on the YouTube below), 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.

2) 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.)

You can find a collection of previous Temple Sholom services preserved on our YouTube channel - sholomnj.
