SPECIAL MESSAGEs - WEDNESDAY, MARCH 25, 2020 - scroll to read both

Good Morning, Everyone,

I know we had a rocky start to this past Friday's service with some technical glitches but, thanks to some dedicated people, we were able to get back up.  The service recording is available on our website archives.
If you'd like to watch the whole service, click here.
If you'd like to skip directly to the sermon, you can click here.
I'm sorry, I haven't figured out how to create a version of the service without the sermon! 

We've got a busy week coming up at Temple Sinai.  Read through the following announcements about changes and additions to what is going on.

Thursday Evening/Friday Morning
Looking for a fun activity and an opportunity to make your Shabbat table a little more special? Julie TelRav will be offering a two part Zoom tutorial on making challah! On Thursday evening at 7:00 pm, click here to join us as we make the dough, refrigerating it overnight, and then finishing it up on Friday at 1:00 pm.  Click here to join that zoom session. 

Please click here to see the ingredients you'll want to have on hand.

Friday Evening
With the Governor's new proclamation, Temple Sinai will retreat even further from its normal operations.  We will not be broadcasting services from our building any longer and instead, we'll be shifting over to a zoom-based service.  There are going to be some real upsides to this including increased participation and the ability to see who else is in the service with us.  If you do not already have Zoom on your device, Then you'll need to click here a few minutes early to download the software to your computer, tablet or phone.  Then, at 6pm this Friday, you will just click here (meeting ID: 514-678-155) and you'll be joined into our room. 

Saturday Morning
At 9:00am
The Eugene B. Borowitz Memorial Bible Study Group will meet as usual but this time through Zoom.  No experience studying Bible is necessary.  Drop-ins and first-timers welcome.  Click here to join the zoom meeting. (meeting ID 200-076-655)

And 10:30am
​​​​​​​Another one of the benefits of our reliance on technology is our ability to share the Shabbat morning service with you from the comfort of your own home.  Join us at 10:30am as Cameron Rubin leads the services as a bar mitzvah.  This service will be hosted through zoom so you'll click here when the service is beginning to enter the site.  (meeting ID 203-322-1649)

Saturday Evening Havdalah
This will be our third week ending Shabbat and the short 15-minute service has become precious to so many of us.  Tune in through zoom by clicking here and we'll all sing a little with Cantor Micah and prolong the sweetness of Shabbat together.  Don't worry if you are familiar with the prayers, I'll have all four of them on screen for you!

​​​​​​​Tech support guys...
Finally, if you're having any problems downloading or connecting to Zoom - we have three guys standing by, real-time, to help you.
On Friday evening and Saturday morning, you can call either:
Patrick Kramer - (203) 979-9403
Marty Newman - (917) 502-0661
Grant Kallen - (203) 912-8749
לשלום - L'Shalom - In Peace,
