As we begin the cycle of Torah reading again this Shabbat, we kick off a new year of Torah study! Using materials prepared by Rabbi Josh Feigelson from the Institute for Jewish Spirituality, “She’elot Gedolot/ Asking Big Questions” reads each parasha with an eye to the greater insights and personal values we can glean.

Have questions about using Zoom for services?   Here are some hints:

  • Plan to join “meeting” a few minutes early.
  • Bring Shabbat candlesticks, candles, lighter, Kiddush cup and even Shabbat dinner nearby.
  • You will be muted during services: because of lag time on individual computers, it is a cacophony if we try to pray, sing or talk together. Make sure that your computer is muted; at the bottom far left corner, click the microphone. You are muted if there is a red slash across it. Any background noise in your home comes across loud and clear.
  • How to View: Choose from Gallery View- where you can see all participants, or Speaker view- where you can see either rabbi or cantor (upper right corner.)
  • Video Choices: While we love seeing each other, feel free to also turn your video off. Click the video in the bottom left corner, next to the audio. That will allow you to hear but not be seen, by others. This is a way to feel more private and less self-conscious in prayers.
