Rabbi Daniel Nevins, JTS, in conversation with Rabbis Pamela Barmash and Joshua Heller, authors of the recent CJLS guidance on praying online.

Communities across the globe are struggling to stay connected in this era of social distancing. How do we balance the traditional requirements of minyan with the Jewish—and human—need for community? Though private prayer has always been an option, never before has the possibility of communal prayer happening somewhere been so scarce. How can we support mourners in their time of need during social distancing? How do we apply these principles on Shabbat and Yom Tov? Join these CJLS leaders for learning, conversation, and Q&A.

This webinar is exclusively for rabbis ordained by recognized rabbinical schools. The program is offered in collaboration with the Rabbinical Assembly.
