ZOOM & in-person Services

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. 

In spring 2020, Congregation Shearith Israel suspended all in-person services and programs. Many Conservative congregations have considered the pandemic 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. 

As of June 2021, all services, including Daily Minyan and Shabbat, are taking place in the Sanctuary and on Zoom. We are continuing to count Zoom participants as part of a minyan, or prayer quorum, allowing members to recite full prayer services including Mourner's Kaddish. Our final Zoom service on Shabbat will be August 7, after which point Shabbat services may be live-streamed. Daily Minyan, however, will continue both in-person and on Zoom beyond August 7. 

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