About us

TeleTefila.com exists to serve the davening and social needs of all those who have been closed out of their synagogues by the Coronavirus pandemic. We use ZOOM to hold Shacharit services every Shabbat morning, Havdalah at the close of Shabbat, Kaffeeklatsch every Wednesday evening. We celebrate the Jewish festivals and some secular holidays together, and organize virtual shiva minyanim when needed. We also schmooze up a storm, have online "picnics" and play Whist together. And it's all done via ZOOM.

A group of friends from the West Side Minyan and Minyan Rimonim, both of which are affiliates of Congregation Ansche Chesed, founded TeleTefila shortly after Purim, 2020, when it became clear we could no longer meet in person. Since then, our merry band has expanded to include new friends from Massachusetts to Delaware.

What is our practice? At Shabbat Shacharit, our service is slightly abridged and we read Torah following the Triennial cycle. Since we don't have a Torah scroll, we read from a chumash without aliyot or Torah blessings. We chant Haftarah every week. For more details about what we do at Shacharit, you can see our Order of Service. If you don't want to operate your computer on Shabbat, you can log in to our Shabbat services on Friday before Shabbat begins.

Our schedule for the next few weeks is posted below, with links to the login information.

If you have questions, drop a note to info@TeleTefila.com. We'd love to hear from you.

Times and texts for this Shabbat and/or Festival

updated every sunday evening, for New York, NY

Torah: We read Torah according to the triennial cycle. In 5782 (2021–2022), we're in the third year of the cycle.

Haftarah: We read the conventional Haftarah every week. If the Sephardic Haftarah is significantly shorter, we read that.

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 Sefaria.org website.

On the Ansche Chesed roof.

Pot Luck dairy, following the usual AC kashrut rules. In the event of inclement weather, the picnic will be held on ZOOM. Sponsored by Minyan Rimonim & TeleTefila.

Executive Summary of AC Kashrut Policy:

  1. NO MEAT may be brought in
  2. Kosher Homes May Provide Cooked Dairy and Pareve Food
  3. Non-Kosher Homes May Provide Uncooked Food or Purchase Kosher Food (Cut-up raw fruits and vegetables, and salads, including tuna salad made with all-kosher ingredients, prepared in homes which do not keep kosher may be brought into Ansche Chesed. Note that canned tuna requires kashrut certification since certain brands cook their tuna in chicken broth. Certified-kosher foods in sealed packaging may also be brought into Ansche Chesed.)
