Have some folks opted out b/c of the frequency or is it sent to entire kehilla?
Hazzan Alisa Pomerantz-Boro
42:56
It is sent to everyone. Very well received!!!
Jennifer Stofman

Hazzan Alisa Pomerantz-Boro

Are all the minyans on Zoom?
Hazzan Alisa Pomerantz-Boro
43:52
Yes.
Hazzan Alisa Pomerantz-Boro
43:57
except for shabbat
Jennifer Stofman
44:08
we will be collecting questions to be asked at the conclusion
Hazzan Alisa Pomerantz-Boro
44:15
Shabbat is prerecorded
Adam Stein
44:33
So you do nothing live on shabbat/chag, right?
Hazzan Alisa Pomerantz-Boro
44:46
Correct.
Adam Stein
45:12
Hazzan Pomerant-Boro was great back in San Diego, too! I was a college student attending her shul. ;)
Hazzan Alisa Pomerantz-Boro
45:26
Shucks! Thanks!! :-)
Hazzan Alisa Pomerantz-Boro
45:34
Nice to have a fan in the room!
David Kosak
48:13
We are similarly positioned as you, though we do live stream on Shabbat. I’d be curious what you are doing about Torah reading and d’varim sheb’kedusha
Hazzan Alisa Pomerantz-Boro
48:35
I'm going to talk about that when it is my turn
David Kosak

How about shofar blowing on Rosh Hashanah if you are pre-recording.the service?
Hazzan Alisa Pomerantz-Boro
50:52
I'm going to talk details.

Rabbi Kosak and Hazzan Pomerantz-Boro... Yes, we've been doing Zoom on Shabbat with a couple non Jewish helpers running the zoom (mute/unmute, show etz hayim pdf) and waiting room... We've been doing no d'varim sebik'dusha or chanting from scroll, EXCEPT we allow for kaddish yatom... Having a dozen jews in the sanctuary for HHD or an upcoming bar mitzvah will allow us to do some of those aspects of the service. But of course it can't as edited or polished!
Adam Stein
57:54
So it'll be like a (traditional) tv show that on at a certain time... You watch from 9am-1:30pm and that's the only option until the replay is availalble later... I like that idea.
Hazzan Alisa Pomerantz-Boro
58:19
Yes! exatly.
Jacksonville Jewish Center
01:05:43
So no one is actually called to the Torah for aliyot?
Aaron Krupnick
01:06:00
Yes, we’ll have alit, too
Aaron Krupnick
01:06:08
aliyot
Gena Cohen
01:07:35
Are you using the Torah and having everyone touch the same Torah?
Adam Stein
01:10:53
Will you include things like k'dusha, bar'khu, etc. In the recording?
Jacksonville Jewish Center
01:13:52
Beautiful singing!
Adam Stein
01:14:48
That's really beautiful Alisa and quite impressive.
Jacksonville Jewish Center
01:17:09
If everything is pre-recorded than those who are reciting Kaddish Yatom are doing so without a minyan?
CLS
01:17:40
Huge minyan! Just not in the same room. :)
CLS
01:18:10
My humble opinion
Jacksonville Jewish Center
01:18:25
If folks can neither hear nor see one another, not sure how that's a minyan.
Rabbi Joshua Heller
01:19:01
I’ve would argue that pre-recorded does not constitute a minyan.
David Kosak
01:19:02
That’s where different communities will find their own ahalakhic answers
Rabbi Joshua Heller
01:20:28
I would agree, though that every Mara D’atra needs to work with the situation they are presented with.
Aaron Krupnick
01:20:46
Thanks.
David Kosak
01:21:36
Some of my congregants say that my back is my best side :0)
Hazzan Alisa Pomerantz-Boro
01:21:48
LOL
Hazzan Alisa Pomerantz-Boro
01:21:59
I don't want them looking at me period!!!
Hazzan Alisa Pomerantz-Boro
01:22:09
But I typically face the ark...so this is all new
