Rabbi Miller online during Covid-19 shelter in place directives

Beth Ami has been working on ways to bring services, davening and Torah study into our homes while our building is closed. We are starting with Zoom sessions, plus streaming video on our Facebook page at these times, along with pdfs of prayerbooks for following along:
Friday, Kabbalat Shabbat 6:00 pm, Siddur Chadash Kabbalat Shabbat
Saturday, 9:30 am, Siddur Chadash Shabbat Morning

Weekday: 8:30 a.m. Sunday through Friday mornings, and weekday evenings at 8:00 p.m. will be conducted on Zoom. Email Rabbi@BethAmiSR.org if you have questions.

We would love for you and your family to join us Friday evenings 6:00 pm on the Beth Ami Zoom page  to join in welcoming the Shabbat. Our plan is for each family to have their Shabbat Candles ready to kindle.  We will start the Zoom session at 6:00 pm; light our candles together and (while on mute), join Lisa Iskin in chanting the Blessing.
Immediately following we will have an abbreviated musical Kabbalat Shabbat service which should end around 6:40 pm. This will conclude with the chanting of Kiddush and we hope you will be able to join us for this part, too.
We hope that joining as a community, in this way, will lift all our spirits with the beauty and holiness of Shabbat.
b’Shalom,
Carolyn Metz,   Mordecai Miller
