Shabbat, Yom Tov and High Holy Days Live Streaming Instructions

In keeping with the sanctity of the Shabbat and other Holy Days, it is preferable, if attending services via live streaming, to follow certain protocols so as to maintain the holiness of the day.

  1. Shabbat and Holy Days are times that we traditionally gather with friends and relatives. If you are part of a family bubble that regularly gathers in your home, then invite the other people in your family bubble to join you for services. This will help make the day special.
  2. Prior to Shabbat, Yom Tov or the High Holy Days, ensure that you have sufficient Siddurim, Chumashim and Machzorim for the people in your home. Prior to the High Holy Days, you may obtain a Machzor from the synagogue that is yours to keep.
  3. Even though you will not be in the synagogue building, consider dressing as though you are going to shul. Our homes are considered a Mikdash Me’at, a small sanctuary. When praying at home, you are in your own personal sanctuary. When there is a Minyan in the synagogue’s sanctuary, you are considered part of the Minyan when you participate in the live-stream.
  4. If possible, designate a location or room in your home that will be set aside for attending services. It should not be in a high traffic or noisy area.
  5. Make sure that the designated area has easy access to an electrical outlet and has either a wired Internet connection or good and reliable Wi-Fi.
  6. The designated room should be large enough for all attending the live-stream service in your home, should be well lit and well ventilated.
  7. Make sure that your computer is in good working order. (see recommended requirements in paragraph 16) Although live-streamed services can be accessed on any device, computer, tablet or smart phone, a computer with its larger screen is preferable.
  8. It is recommended that the device used be plugged in to an electrical outlet and not to use battery power.
  9. Verify that the computer audio is loud enough to hear clearly but not so loud as to bother others in your household.
  10. The computer should be set to access the synagogue live stream before Shabbat or the Holy Days.
  11. Once set, the computer should not be touched for the duration of the Shabbat or Holy Day.
  12. As the synagogue live-stream is always on, it is recommended to test your setup prior to the Shabbat or Holy Days to make sure that everything is in order. Please connect during a regular weekday service so that you will be able to test the sound and volume as well.
  13. On Shabbat, Yom Tov and for Daily services you may access the live-stream directly at
  14. On Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, you will need a ShulCloud Login and be logged in to access the live-stream. Only members in good standing can access the live-stream. To Login to ShulCloud go to and click on Login at the top right of your screen. Enter your email and password and click Sign In. If you do not have a login, click Forgot Password to register. The synagogue must have your current email address for this to work. Contact the synagogue office to attach your email to your account.
  15. Please follow the following directions to ensure that your computer accesses the live-stream in a halachic manner. You will need to know the type of computer you have and it’s operating system. Although instructions for smart-phones and tablets are included, the quality may not be as expected.
  16. The following are the minimum requirements for accessing the live-stream based on the device you have. If possible you should upgrade to the latest Operating System patches and latest browser versions that are compatible with your system.

  1. If you are having issues with setting up your device the following will usually help:
    1. Clear your browser cache. Some browsers call this function Empty Caches. The browser cache contains old data from accessing websites. Sometimes this old data interferes with the proper running of your web browser. It is a good idea to perform this function every once in a while under normal operating conditions
    2. Restart your computer. This action can fix many computer ailments. You should restart your computer at least once a week.


Make the most of your synagogue live-stream. Participate, sing along to the tunes you know and feel as though you are physically present in the sanctuary.
