As we begin to emerge from a life of confinement and isolation under the pandemic, many of the tools we have put in place to get us through are no longer needed. Over the next couple of weeks, we will be transitioning out several things that we put in place to make sure that our worship services continued unimpeded throughout the last fourteen months.
Starting this Shabbat, we will return to the new Lev Shalem Siddur for Shabbat and Holidays. If you do not own a hard copy, there is a pdf version accessible from our website here: https://www.midbarkodesh.org/live-streaming
You can buy a hard copy here: https://www.rabbinicalassembly.org/resources-ideas/publications
Starting the Shabbat of June 4th/5th, we will no longer use Zoom to stream Shabbat, holiday and weekday services. We will continue to livestream our services through Facebook Live at https://www.facebook.com/Midbarkodeshtemplelasvegas/. We are also working on having a dedicated streaming page accessible directly on our website.
At the beginning of May, we started serving light kiddushes after Friday night and Shabbat morning services.
We are working on revitalizing our daily minyan on Sunday, Monday and Thursday mornings. We meet on Sundays at 9:00 AM and Monday and Thursday at 7:30 AM. We need people who are committed to attending in-person. We have COVID protocols in place. We are also serving a light breakfast following minyan.
We will continue to check temperatures and require masks except while eating. We will continue to wipe down surfaces between services. We will continue to have masks and sanitizer readily available.
Wishing everyone a Shabbat Shalom and hope to see everyone over the upcoming Shavuot holiday beginning Sunday night May 16 with our Jewish Trivia and late night study on the topic of whether vaccines are required by Jewish law. We will have Yom Tov services at 9:00 am on Monday and Tuesday, May 17-18, with Yizkor recited during services on Tuesday, May 18th.
