AN IMPORTANT UPDATE FROM RABBI ERIC AND LISA SEGAL, PRESIDENT

 

March 26, 2020

Rosh Chodesh Nisan 5780


Dear B’nai Israelite,


In our letter of March 12th adopting heightened measures of social distancing and closing the building, in keeping with then guidance we spoke of a “pause” until at least March 29th. Clearly, that policy will continue forward for some time.


Starting this Shabbat Rabbi Eric and Linda Goodman, Director of Sacred Music will co-lead services from their home via Zoom. (If you haven’t already downloaded a FREE version of Zoom from zoom.us; it is also a free app for your telephone or tablet.) Prayers from an electronic version of our Reform Siddur Mishkan T’filah will appear on the screen. We invite you to attend this way, and stay afterwards for a virtual reception line and short Oneg.


To do so you must email rabbi@bnaiisraelsouthbury.org BEFORE 7:15 PM on Friday to receive the necessary code for the 7:30 PM Kabbalat Shabbat Friday Night Service. We can accommodate 100 participants within this virtual chapel, so register early.


It will also be possible to watch the service on Zoom through our YouTube Channel. The direct link is: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZcCrkD5AAfg0_5R0oBl2lw

or follow an easy link from our website: bnaiisraelsouthbury.org. For this we are extremely grateful to Maxx Berkowitz!


We encourage you to take advantage of our on-line programing, and to likewise maintain connection with our staff via the emails listed below or the telephone 203-267-3394.
