Prayer At Home

While our Sanctuary is open for Shabbat and holiday services, we welcome many who are praying with our community virtually.

Remote services and programs have moved to VirtuShul.

High Holy Days – 5782

We will require registration to join our High Holy Days services virtually via livestream. There will be no Zoom option this year. Registration will be available soon and is free for members and non-members.

Need a Mahzor to participate virtually? Order your own hard copy of Mahzor Lev Shalem from the Rabbinical Assembly or download the digital version of Mahzor Lev Shalem, available for purchase.

If none of these options work for you, BJ members in good standing may make arrangements to borrow a Mahzor from BJ. Please fill out this form to request a copy.

Shabbat Livestream

We continue to broadcast Shabbat services via our Livestream (YouTube, Facebook, and bj.org/live). Other services will be offered by Zoom meetings.

Kabbalat Shabbat is streamed Fridays at 6:30PM, Shabbat Morning services are being streamed at 9:30AM.

Daily Minyan

Through our daily minyan, there are opportunities each day to gather in virtual community, maintain a spiritual practice, while supporting those in our midst who are saying Kaddish. We invite you to visit our Calendar of Services to learn about the specific times of today’s minyanim. All daily minyanim take place on the Zoom platform. Please click here if you are experiencing any trouble with setting up Zoom on your computer, tablet, or smartphone.

Virtual Havdalah and Ma’ariv

Join us on Zoom each week as we bring Shabbat to a close as a community. Please note that the start time is later each week as the end of Shabbat gradually shifts.

Prayer at Home Resources

If you would like to follow along with our services from home, the Rabbinic Assembly has made Siddur Lev Shalem (Shabbat) and Siddur Sim Shalom (daily minyan) available for download as a PDF via this form. If you would prefer a physical copy, the siddurim are available for purchase via the Rabbinical Assembly website.

Click here to use our full transliterations for Morning Minyan.

We invite you to reference these Supplemental Texts for Shabbat, used during our Shabbat services.

We are pleased to share the following alternative to Mourner’s Kaddish, written by Rabbi Haim Ovadia, meant to be recited when there is no minyan present. As our livestream does not constitute a minyan, we invite those who are saying Kaddish this Shabbat to print this prayer in advance of tuning in.

Resources for Families

We are excited to share online resources with our families for Prayer@Home practice. These include source sheets from our Hebrew Coordinator, Alex Hamilton, as well as companion videos from Michael Harlow.
