Virtual Minyan

Join our new CSI Virtual Minyan!

Starting March 22, 2020, Congregation Sons of Israel will be having our own Virtual Minyan every Sunday (9:15 am), Monday (8:00 am), and Thursday (8:00 am). Each service lasts about 30 minutes. It’s a great way to see fellow congregants and to allow members of our community and anyone else around the world to join us to say Kaddish.

Please join us from 9:00-9:15 am on Sunday and from 7:45-8:00 am on Monday/Thursday to chat and catch up, test your connection, and get settled. We will begin services promptly at the start time.

If you have never used Zoom before, you will need to download the Zoom app — either on your phone or computer. Clicking on the link should enable you to download and install the Zoom app.
You must use video and audio to be counted in the minyan, as we need to be able see each other, but you can also join by audio only if need be and still fully participate and say Kaddish.

5/24 is Rosh Chodesh Sivan. We will add the Psalm for Rosh Chodesh after the Psalm for Thursday (SSS p90, PDF p183) and we also add the Ya’aleh V’Yavo paragraph in the Amidah (SSS p41, PDF p88). There is also no Tachanun from Rosh Chodesh Sivan until the morning of the 13th of Sivan (6/5).

It will be wonderful to see everyone and to enable our mourners or those observing yahrtzeits to say Kaddish!
