All Shabbat evening services online will now be EARLY services, with candle lighting at 6:00pm (after which those who want to enjoy a techno-free Shabbat can log out) and services following around 6:15pm. (There will be no 8pm services until in-person gatherings can resume.) Shabbat morning services will be at 10:30am.
We encourage all who will be logging on Friday evening to have Shabbat candles, matches, kiddush cup and wine or grape juice ready. If possible, set up your computer in a different space from your office or workspace and try to create a quiet, calming environment.
Early log-on for those unfamiliar with the Zoom format, as well as time to greet each other, before the service begins, will be available 5:45pm on Friday, and 10:15am Saturday.
