Connecting to Shacharit (Shabbat Morning Services) using Zoom

Shabbat morning TeleTefila services generally begin at 10:00 am, but please check the Calendar to be sure. Davening begins promptly, 10 minutes after the posted starting time. You can find a chart with the page numbers for four different siddurim at http://www.teletefila.com/login.html#order. Information on preparing for TeleTefila Shabbat services can be found at http://www.teletefila.com/login.html#preparing. We look forward to your davening with us!

The following link will work for most users. If you experience audio problems, turn off your speakers and dial in using one of the numbers below, at "Dial by your location." Desktop users who do not have a webcam and microphone should consider purchasing an external USB camera and external USB headset with boom mic (we hope to post some recommendations soon).

Preparing for Shabbat 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 now download all of them in a single PDF file.

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.

Leading Shabbat Morning Services at TeleTefila

Since we began in March 2020, we've established a service that packs the maximum amount of content into the minimum length of time. Here's how we do it:

In general

Preliminary

Sh'ma uVirchoteiha (the Sh'ma section)

Shacharit Amida

Torah Service

Musaf

Conclusion

Kiddush -- You're invited! We take a 10 minute break to gather some lunch, then we make Kiddush (often just borei p'ri hagafen) and Motzi, followed by a leisurely schmooze.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY — Shacharit

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY — Musaf

Saturday evening Havdalah

Havdalah is at a different time each week. Please check the Calendar for this week's time.

[N.B.: When the time for Havdalah is after 9:00 pm (roughly, January through July), we open the ZOOM at 9:00 for schmoozing, even though it is still Shabbat. The schmooze continues after Havdalah, which is great for those who don't ZOOM on Shabbat.]

Tuesday evening Maariv

For those who don't ZOOM on Shabbat, here's your chance to daven with friends!

Maariv is called for 7:40 pm, and davening begins promptly at 7:50 pm. It's always a good idea to check our Calendar to see if there is some exception. The service is short (20–30 minutes). For Maariv, we deem ourselves a minyan when we have 10 adult Jews participating, whether by audio or video. ┬áIf necessary, we use the “Prayer in place of Mourner’s Kaddish when a Minyan is not Present” from Siddur Lev Shalem.

We don’t announce page numbers because participants use whatever siddur they own. You can download either "Siddur Lev Shalem: Weekday Evening and Havdalah" or "Siddur Sim Shalom: Evening Services for Weekdays" from the Rabbinical Assembly website.

During the month of Elul, we include Psalm 27 in Maariv. Here are the page numbers for that Psalm:

Slim Shalom Fat Shalom and Baby Shalom Weekday Shalom Lev Shalem Weekday Prayer Book (Hadas) Artscroll Birnbaum
80 40 92 59 107 489 (in gray box) 147

After Maariv, you're invited to stay for a post-davening schmooze.

[N.B.: Why did we choose 7:40 pm? One can say Maariv as early as plag haMincha, and our 7:40 pm starting time is always after that. After Pesach, we want to able to count omer during Maariv, and our 7:40 pm starting time allows that without too much delay.]

Marking happy and sad events at TeleTefila

Just like when we met in person, you can sponsor Kiddush to mark a birthday, anniversary, or yortsayt (yahrtzeit), etc. The only difference is that we just look at the food you brought, but we don’t help you eat it. You’ll get to say Kiddush and Motzi and say a few words about the special occasion.

If you don’t ZOOM on Shabbat, we’ll try to accommodate you at Maariv or Kaffeeklaatsch. Just drop a note to info@TeleTefila.com .

If you want to mark a yortsayt with El Malei during the Torah service, download the text from here: http://www.teletefila.com/files/el-male-from-Bond-of-Life.pdf . Or you can ask a member of the TeleTefila chevra to recite it on your behalf.

Birkat haGomeil is a prayer of gratitude, recited after overcoming a life-threatening illness or surviving a dangerous event. If that applies to you, you can recite the prayer after the Torah reading.
