Several progressive Jewish communities around the world offer a streaming service for some of their services so if you’re unable to attend a service you can watch through your computer, smartphone, tablet and through some smart TV’s.
This allows people living or working abroad, or those who live too far from their synagogue and those who through illness or age can’t get to services to feel “connected” to their community.
You can access the services and find contact details at the links below:
Setting up live streaming for your community is much more straight forward and affordable than you might realise. It has now become extremely cost effective to live stream events, including synagogue services, to those not able to attend.
Leo Mindel, who organised the live streaming of our 2018 Biennial Weekend, wrote an article with guidance that will prove very helpful to those hoping to stream services at a low cost. It can be read here.
The Church of England have also published an excellent and very detailed ‘how to’ guide that is equally as appropriate for synagogues as churches. It can be read here.
