We’ve been wrestling with how to handle the issue of Shabbat. We don’t want to encourage people to use electronic devices on Shabbat. We want to minimize any potential violations of Shabbat for those who seek to participate. With this in mind, please download the Zoom app (for phones or tablets) and the siddur (and print out) before Shabbat.

Neither logging in for Friday night services before Shabbat, nor leaving the Zoom on, is a problem regarding observance of Shabbat. As host, we have set up streaming so the same room will remain active through the morning service. This means your household can join services Friday night and remain on through the morning service. It is possible to set a computer, phone or tablet to “stay awake” over Shabbat (see below). However, if you are doing this, it is key that you log in from a room in your house where activities and noise will not be a disruption to others.

How to have your computer/tablet not turn off over Shabbat:

  1. Make sure it is plugged into power.
  2. For iPhone/iPad, in settings, under display and brightness, set auto-lock to never.
  3. For PC, click here.
  4. For Mac, in Control Panel, under “Desktop and Screensaver,” change “Start After” to "Never."

Siddur Instructions

If you do not have a siddur at home, please download the siddurs listed. There is one for Friday night and one for Saturday, both are the Siddur Lev Shalem.

We are also including the Torah and Haftarah readings.

For those who are following more stringent with their Shabbat observance, please print the siddur and Torah readings rather than use it online.
