We encourage those who are able to watch or listen to a live stream of Kabbalat Shabbat and Kahal Morning Services on Zoom. If you do decide to join the Zoom call, please mute yourself and keep yourself muted to prevent unnecessary distractions from the worship service. Please feel free to keep your camera on though because it will create a sense of normalcy since we are accustomed to seeing your faces when we lead from the bima. We will also live stream Services on our Facebook page, which can be accessed at any time. Please note that when on Facebook Live, your user name will appear when you speak (e.g. Kahal Torah discussion).

Friday, May 8
6:00 p.m

Z’oneg
Bring your own beverage, cheese, and crackers and schmooze before services start. As you join the Z’Oneg, you will be joined into a “breakout room” with a few other folks to have a small conversation. At 6:10 and 6:20 you will be joined into another “breakout room” so you have an opportunity to get to know others.
