Rabbi Kaiman and Jodi Salomon, Executive Director, in consultation with our leadership at Shearith Israel, the Rabbinical Assembly, USCJ, and experts at the CDC working on COVID-19, have updated guidelines for the next phase of combating this illness. 

Congregation Shearith Israel is suspending all in-person services and programs. Many Conservative congregations are considering this a sha'at d'chak - a time that is a particular stress. One of Rabbi Kaiman's teachers in Jewish law, Rabbi Elliot Dorff, holds by this opinion. This legal category permits certain practices that would normally be forbidden. The relevant example is forming and participating in virtual minyanim. 

All services are being held virtually on Zoom via the button belowWe will count participants participating in these livestreamed services as part of a minyan, or prayer quorum, allowing members to recite full prayer services including Mourner's Kaddish.

To be a part of services, visit the following Zoom link at the appropriate time.
