Rabbi Mark Cooper

Dear Oheb Shalom Family,

We are living through a challenging and uncertain time.  Many of you have told me that communal prayer feels more necessary now than ever before. 

While we are following guidelines for social distancing and isolating at home, we still want to see one another.  Sharing a minyan service on ZOOM, an online video platform, will enable us to be together for prayer. (Kabbalat Shabbat Live and Havdalah will continue to be presented live via our YouTube channel.)

Welcome to Zoominyan

Beginning Thursday, March 26, Oheb Shalom will hold a “Zoominyan” Sunday at 9:00 AM, Monday to Friday at 8:00 AM. (This replaces our “Daily Dose of Spirituality” on YouTube.) 

Our Zoominyan will include the same Hebrew and English prayers that are recited when our minyan meets in the building, except for the Torah reading. The Sim Shalom weekday prayer book has been edited to include only the prayers we recite.  Click here to download the PDF file.

How to Connect to Zoominyan

Simply click on the ZOOM URL just before the start time.
(check your email for ZOOM link)

You will need a computer equipped with a webcam and microphone. If you have never used Zoom, you'll be prompted to download the application for your desktop. If you plan on using a phone or tablet, visit your App Store and download the free Zoom App first.

If you need technical assistance, please contact me by email or phone (973-464-3999).

Those who are remembering a loved one may request to have the El Maley Rachamim (memorial) prayer recited.  In this way a Yahrtzeit can be honored in the presence of friends and fellow Oheb members.

Kabbalat Shabbat Live + Havdalah

“Kabbalat Shabbat Live” (Fridays at 6:00 PM) and Havdalah (Saturdays at 8:00 PM) will continue to be livestreamed on Oheb Shalom’s YouTube Channel. Don't forget to click "subscribe"!


B’shalom,
 
RABBI COOPER
