Your efforts are fascinating but you have resources that far exceed 95% of our synagogues. Is there a scaled down version being applied in smaller, less financially blessed synagogues? You have the ability to bring in a gentile to handle production during Shabbat. What are the options for others who can’t afford that?

Thank you to Steve and Daniel for this excellent presentation and sharing your insights. ($150K+ongoing $90K) For those with smaller budgets, we recently returned to in-person Shabbat morning and changed all virtual via zoom to live streaming now using a Portal by Facebook. ($300 and on-going $400).

BZBI with about 400 member units spent just over $10,000 to electrify and wire the sanctuary with consumer grade technology - camcorders,, large screen TV, refurbished PCs and a Blackmagic switcher. Output is to Zoom at 60% off using TechSoup discounts. We hired an independent producer at $50/hour through Upwork.com and have no other expenses. All videos are posted to a web page and receive hundreds of views after.
