In conjunction with the on-going changes due to COVID-19, we have adjusted our service and live streaming. In order to protect the congregation’s health and safety and meet the requested absolute minimums required for a service, we are going to a virtual minyan.
What does that mean for you? We’ll be using a Zoom Webinar for the service itself. The links to the scheduled events below have been updated accordingly. The services will still be archived to our YouTube Channel if you want to review them after the initial broadcast.
If you have already participated in a Zoom seminar with us or through work, the Zoom Webinar will be very familiar. Because of the possibility of a large number of attendees, there are a few differences as noted below:
- Only the minyan’s video and audio will be seen and heard. This includes the Rabbi and cantorial soloist.
- Viewers will see the video and hear the audio but will be required to type in questions/statements in order for them to be seen by the moderator.
- Please Note: If you are interested in being part of the virtual minyan, use the sign-up page by clicking here.
If you are a first time Zoom user, we suggest that you go to the link about 15 minutes early. It isn’t a difficult process, but there are a few additional steps the first time you use Zoom. Being there early will give you plenty of time to download any necessary software and not feel rushed and worried about missing any of the service.
Note from Bob: I have opened a support ticket with Zoom. We should be able to stream the services live on YouTube in conjunction with Zoom so you have both options available. But right now, we can’t. When I opened the ticket, they noted they are behind because of recent demand, so it may take a while. Please bear with us.
If you have a Google/YouTube account, please subscribe to the channel. It will ensure you get the latest updates as they are published. Please Note: Prerecorded streams will show as Private Videos until their scheduled stream time.
Click on the YouTube image to get to the Congregation Kol Ami YouTube channel. You will be able to view all the archived broadcasts and any related videos we may post.
Below you will find links to the currently scheduled Shabbat Service live streams. You can click on the link anytime prior to or during the broadcast to be taken to the live stream directly. After the live broadcast is complete, you will have to go to our YouTube channel to view the archived broadcast.
You can view or download the above siddur to use with the evening service. It includes Aleinu and Kaddish as well as Evening Kiddush. This is the service will use for all of our live streaming Friday night services.
