I’m very excited to announce that beginning this month, I’ll be leading Rosh Chodesh services at OneShul.org. OneShul is a cyber-shul, and if that sounds nuts — trust me it works! The services are streamed live, and you participate via a chat feature. I attended their first ever Kabbalat Shabbat this past friday and was pleasantly surprised by what a lovely, real experience it was.
Even if you doubt the cyber-shul experience — give it a try!
WHERE & WHEN:
Time: 7:30 pm (EST)
Because Rosh Chodesh falls on Shabbat this month, it will be a combined Kabbalat Shabbat and Rosh Chodesh service. We’ll be using the OneShul Siddur this month for Kabbalat Shabbat — if you don’t have one you can easily purchase one, or they have a great feature where the siddur just appears on the page for you, which means you don’t have to buy one. But of course, I’ll be weaving in some fabulous Kohenet versions of the chants and songs.
The Rosh Chodesh portion will be based on the ritual I used with the group I hosted at my home for about a year, modified for this environment. Here’s the insert if you want to download it now (pdf). This insert is an outline, but I expect, depending on time and interest that we’ll also talk about the month ahead (Adar I).

Be sure to bring your own challah and wine! It’s hard to share that over the Internet!
