Dear BAS Family: We are exploring ways we can be in touch with all of you even as we prepare for our next virtual Shabbat Service. These are very difficult times, so must strive to find innovative ways to stay connected and allow our Judaism to sustain and strengthen us.
Our 7:00PM Erev Shabbat Service Service will continue to be broadcast on StreamSpot, will Just click on the link below to take you to our broadcast.
2.) Facebook: Beth Am Shalom – a reform congregation
If you enjoy watching the live-steam on Facebook, please do so. Simply go to Beth Am Shalom – a reform congregation and continue to do what you have been doing.
In fact, our StreamSpot plan allows up to 100 concurrent viewers. So, if you are a Facebook user, keep using it!
2.) Website: bethamshalom.org
This is also an easy way to view our broadcast on StreamSpot. Simply visit our website at: bethamshalom.org, scroll down until you see the large black box that says Beth Am Shalom at the top and StreamSpot in the middle. Click on the large arrow in the middle. If you do this anytime (except when we ARE broadcasting) you will see a message that says we are not broadcasting now and when the next scheduled broadcast will begin.

2) You can follow along in a virtual siddur (prayer book) by clicking the link below. https://www.ccarnet.org/publications/mishkan-tfilah-weekdays-shabbat-festivals/
It will take you to a digital version of Mishkan T’filah. I suggest you begin getting accustomed to it now, since there are a few tools that you want to be comfortable using. For example, you can enlarge the “page”, and you want to get used to turning pages, or seeing more than one page on the screen at a time. You will be glad you took the time to do this, so using the digital siddur will not interfere with your prayer experience. Also, if you use the digital siddur on a computer, you will need another device to watch and listen to the livestream. The more savvy among you, technically speaking, may be able to see both on the same screen. (If you know how, please send me instructions! Thanks.) This digital version is made available free of the charge by the publisher, the Central Conference of American Rabbis (CCAR—the organization of Reform Rabbis.)
