Who we are

Most of the people who daven with us belong to the West Side Minyan or Minyan Rimonim, which are two of the worship groups at Ansche Chesed, a Conservative congregation on the West Side of Manhattan, but everyone is invited to participate.

What is our practice? We are sensitive to the fact that this is distance davening. On Shabbat or Yom Tov morning, if we can see 10 adult Jews, we deem ourselves a minyan (quorum of ten). For a Virtual Shiva or Maariv, we also count those calling in on their phones.

We read Torah according to the Triennial cycle. Since we don't have a Torah scroll, we chant Torah from a Chumash, but without aliyot or the usual blessings.If we don't have a minyan, we make appropriate modifications to the service, such as using "Prayer in Place of Mourner's Kaddish" from Siddur Lev Shalem.

Torah: We read Torah according to the triennial cycle. This year, we're in the first year of the cycle.

Haftarah: We read the conventional Haftarah. When the present unpleasantness is over (b'li ayin hara), the West Side Minyan will return to the Rabbinical Assembly's Triennial Haftarah cycle.

Instructions: If you click on the name of the parsha, you'll get the chapter and verse for this week's readings. From there, you can click and get the actual Hebrew and English texts of the readings, curtesy of the Sepharia website.

Preparing for services

1. Please have a siddur (prayerbook) handy. You can use any siddur you own, but please mark the major divisions in advance with a bookmark or Post-It®. We do not announce page numbes during services. Below is a table of the major landmarks in some of the most popular siddurim.

If you don't own a siddur, you can download the Shabbat Morning Service from Siddur Lev Shalem at the Rabbinical Assembly website. Note: The RA has updated the Shabbat service PDF to include Shabbat Rosh Chosesh. Look for "Siddur Lev Shalem: Shabbat Morning (with additions for Shabbat Rosh Hodesh)."

2. Several things we do in the service may be missing from your siddur or hard to find. You can download and print them in advance, using the "Click to download" links in the chart below.

3. You'll want to have a Chumash, Tikkun, Tanach, or Bible. Alternatively, you can print this week's readings by following the instructions here.

4. Virtual Kiddush: Please bring some food so that, after the services, we can watch you eat.

If you need help, please drop a note to info@teletefila.com. Email will not be answered during services.
