Virtual Minyan

Join our CSI Virtual Minyan!

Congregation Sons of Israel will have 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 9:10-9:15am on Sunday and from 7:55-8:00am 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 Zoom link below 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.

* Tachanun is read silently after the Amidah. There are many days that Tachanun is not recited, so just listen for special instructions at the beginning of the Amidah.
 
During the Yamim Nora'im, we add/swap lines within the silent Amidah on pages 39 and 43; Tachanum is postponed until after Avinu Malkanu (57/116); and on the day before Yom Kippur, we do not say Tachanum or Laminatzeah (79/160). 
 

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