We regularly hold a Kabbalat Shabbat service on Friday evenings starting at 6:00 p.m.
Regular Saturday Shabbat services begin at 10:00 a.m.
Services Suspended due to COVID-19
After consulting with Rabbi Lanxner and out of an abundance of caution, we think that the most responsible thing to do for the time being is to hold off on all synagogue activities and services. Our hope is that we can revisit this before the end of the year and get back to our regularly scheduled shul.
We know this seems extreme but we are only following the examples of the colleges and the schools and other organizations in this country as well as much of the national Jewish community.
If you need anything please reach out to the Rabbi or to me.
Everyone stay well and safe and hopefully we will all be together very soon.
Special Security Announcement For Live Services:
We have upgraded our security arrangements in light of recent events at synagogues around the world. We ask that you make every effort to arrive before the services start. The door will be locked once services begin with a uniformed officer. If you arrive late, someone will have to be called out of the service to let you in. If you are visiting and believe you will be running late, please let the Rabbi know so that we can try to make accommodations.
Special Streamed Services During COVID-19 Restrictions
In an effort to stay connected we are going to try and have virtual services from my study in my house and (hopefully) you will all be able to watch these services. Below you will find the links to these services.
The regular Shabbat services both Friday night and Saturday morning can be accessed from the online service tab on this site.
The Saturday PM Havdalla and Sunday Talmud study will be on Zoom.
Your instructions are very simple if you have a computer or a smart phone or a tablet. You can also download the Zoom App on your device. All you will have to do is click on that link below and watch and listen.
When you are ready to leave the service just press “leave meeting” and no one will be able to hear you. This is set up so that all of you will be muted when you get on. The most important thing is that you do not touch mute (microphone icon) on your device. This will interrupt the service and make it difficult to continue with that interruption.
Just stay muted!
In Psalms 100 we read: עבדו את ה’ בשמחה, באו לפניו ברננה
Serve G-d in JOY, come before Him with joyous song.
Looking forward to reconnect and being with all of you soon, G-d Willing, B”H. Shalom, Rabbi Ben-Zion Lanxner
