Guidelines for ZOOM Participation

Beforehand:

  • You must be registered to receive the Zoom connection info.  We will contact everyone who plans to attend as we get closer to Rosh Hashanah. 
  • We will use the same connection for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. 
  • If you have not used Zoom before it’s a good idea to test it beforehand. 
  • All participants will automatically be muted upon entry and will not have the ability to share a screen.
  • If you have been selected to read a prayer or otherwise participate in the service, a host will un-mute you. 

Zoom Etiquette:

  • Don’t be late.  The service will be shorter than usual – about 2 ½ hours for mornings, 1 hour for Neilah.
  • Sit still as much as possible.  Everyone can be seen and movements are distracting.  If you don’t want to be seen, turn off your video.
  • Do not eat on camera.
  • Stay muted until appropriate times to unmute yourself.  When you are not muted everyone can hear you – including ringing phones, doorbells, side conversations, toilets flushing, and other background noise.
  • Don’t muti-task. Observe the same decorum as if you were in a synagogue.
