Livestream:

Most of this year’s virtual offering will come through as a Livestream (one-way, not interactive; like watching a production on your computer/device). To view the Livestream, simply access the website above and hit the “Play” button.

Aliyah Zoom Room:

Do you have an Aliyah to the Torah?   If so, underneath of the Livestream, you’ll see this button.

Please hit this button before the Torah Reading portion of the service (10am) which launch a separate Zoom session, controlled by our Tech Team.  They will queue up all of the Aliyot Readers and sequentially cut to those people to deliver their Aliyah live-remote from their homes.  The Congregation will be able to see the remote Aliyot Readers on screen.

High Holiday Greetings / President’s Message:

Continue to scroll down and you will see buttons for the HH Greetings and President’s Message.

  • The HH Greetings button will launch the video montage of the member-submitted video and written greetings for the Shomrei Torah family and community.
  •  The President’s Message button will launch the pre-recorded State of the Shul video from our President Henry Ramer
