COVID-19 Virtual Shabbat Service Update:

In place of Shabbat services for the foreseeable future, On Shabbat mornings, Rabbi Dorsch will hold a virtual Shabbat service in the Levine Family Chapel at 10:00 a.m. Because there will not be a minyan present (no one else will be in attendance), this will be an abbreviated service, also with an alternative form of mourner’s kaddish. While this should be set automatically, please be sure to mute your line during the service. You can join the meeting by clicking here, or by dialing 646.558.8656 (when prompted for meeting ID, press 365 561 931).

Our virtual daily minyan will begin at 8:30 a.m. each morning, Rabbi Dorsch will hold a daily sacred reflection time each morning. Included in this time will be the recitation of a few prayers (feel free to wear tallit and tefillin), a Mi Shebeyrach for healing, a moment of Torah study, and a time for mourners to recite an alternative form of Kaddish. Please note that the conference room will open at 8:00 a.m. to create a virtual kiddush space for folks to connect, “share a cup of coffee,” and chat prior to the experience. You can join digitally by clicking here, or via the phone: Dial 646.558.8656 (when prompted for meeting ID, press 375 012 438).
