Shabbat Pre-Service Meet Up In The (Virtual) Foyer With Akselrad Guest Speaker Lindsey Newman

Friday, January 15, 2021 2 Sh'vat 5781

5:30 PM - 6:15 PMZoom Videoconference

Remember what it was like to greet people in the Beth Am Foyer on the way into the Sanctuary for Shabbat services? Since our services went exclusively virtual, streamed online, does it feel as if some of that connection to people has been missing in your life? If so, considering joining your Beth Am community in The Foyer (virtually, of course).  

Come see old friends and get caught up, or meet new people also tuning in to the virtual Erev Shabbat services. Wishing others a Shabbat Shalom is part of the experience that many of us have been missing.

This week, three of Rabbi Akselrad’s children, Rabbi Sandy Akselrad, Audrey Smith and Lisa Akselrad, will join The Foyer in honor of our 2021 Akselrad Lecture event. We will share memories of Rabbi Akselrad and reflect on his work for social justice. Learn more about the lecturer.

The Foyer meets both before and after our Erev Shabbat services:

Before Services: This week we will open up a Zoom connection from 5:30 to 6:15 PM. Then, as we hear the opening strains of Hinei Mah Tov, we will say the blessing over the candles together and proceed to tune in to the streaming service: at betham.org/streaming, on Facebook Live or on YouTube.

After Services: Immediately following the streamed service and hamotzi — blessing over the challah — we will open a Zoom room (use the same link used before the service) for about 30 minutes to meet and greet each other, to check in and perhaps discuss the sermon. Bring your own challah if you wish.

To receive Zoom access information (to be used both before and after the service), please complete the form below. You can use the same link for both the pre- and post-service Foyer meetings.
