Virtual Minyan

Thanks to the efforts of Rabbi Kieffer and our lay leadership, we are able to have a ‘cyber’ minyan with audio and video so you can hear and see the others who are participating. Our minyan will run just as if we were all in the chapel together. Please be aware that this process will only be considered acceptable during the time of this Coronavirus crisis and only on weekdays (i.e., not on Shabbat or Yom Tov).


 
We are planning to hold our Morning and Evening Minyans as we usually do, during the week and on Sundays. Our minyan times will be the usual, 7:20AM Monday through Friday, 6:00PM Monday thru Thursday, and 8:30AM and 5:00PM on Sunday.
 
For those of you who do not have a Weekday Sim Shalom siddur, Shacharit and Mincha services are available of various services in .pdf format that you can download. To download your copy go to:

Follow these instructions to set up the Zoom software for our shul-wide ZOOM connection.  It will work on PC, MAC, Tablets and Phones, preferably with a camera so we can see everyone who attends.We look forward to staying in touch and maintaining our contact with all of you:

 
ONE-TIME SETUP:

  1. Go to https://zoom.us on a device that has a webcam – preferably a laptop, but a cell phone or tablet works too.
  2. Create an account.  Click SIGN UP, IT'S FREE.  Create an account using an email address and password. Do not use Facebook or Google options. 
  3. Download the ZOOM Cloud Meetings app.  You'll need to download the app.  You cannot join from a web browser.
  4. Open the app and sign in.  Use the email/password you used to sign up.
  5. If you're planning to use a headset or headphones, test them now.  Make sure the audio input and output are set correctly.  Go to https://zoom.us/test.

 
TO JOIN THE PROGRAM OR MEETING:

  1. Click the following link to join: https://zoom.us/j/4314274884. You can also open the Zoom application, click Join Meeting, and enter the following Meeting ID: 431-427-4884 (This is not a phone number.)
  2. Call using Internet Audio.  You will also see an option to dial in.  We recommend you use Internet Audio as the sound quality is much better than when you dial in by phone.
  3. Be sure to give the app permission to use your microphone and camera.

 
DURING THE MEETING:

  1. Turn on video.  We really do want to see you!
  2. Mute yourself when not talking.  Click the microphone button to mute or un-mute. The host has the ability to mute or unmute individuals or the group. Please be mindful that too many people speaking at the same time makes it difficult for everyone to hear.
  3. Find the icon that says ‘Gallery View’ and click on it. This allows you to see the others on the call, not just you and the current speaker. You can scroll left and right to see everyone.

Daily Minyan

The Daily Minyan at Temple Beth Am is an on-going foundation of the community.  Twice each day we come together in the beautiful and spiritual Chapel to join in prayer and song.  In addition to our regular minyan of worshipers, we are joined by those in mourning or honoring a yahrtzeit to recite the Kaddish.  The Daily Minyan is also a sacred space to celebrate Ufruf's, Baby Namings, and B'nai Mitzvah on Monday or Thursday mornings.

Minyan Reflections

"The TBA minyan has become a significant part of my life.  I am part of a group. I am lost in my own thoughts. I get to say thank you for allowing my eyes to open for a new day. I am reminded to love our Lord with all my heart, with all my soul and all my might. I am also reminded not to be led astray by the inclinations  of my heart or by attractions of my eyes. I get to ask please and say thank you.  I am not sure but I think the minyon helps me to try to be a better person."

- Irwin Rubenstein (congregant)
