Halachic Viewing Instructions

As a community that deeply values Jewish law and the needs of the moment, following the guidance of the Committee for Law and Standards of Conservative Judaism, we share below the steps one may follow to access the service without touching the computer on Shabbat.

Bring up this webpage before Shabbat and leave the StreamSpot viewer (above) on overnight. All you have to do is click on the triangle in the middle of the screen to activate the viewer after 7:30pm and before Shabbat begins. If you get an error message, refresh the browser and click again. You will see an image of the bimah until the service begins to stream at 10:00am on Saturday with Rabbi Kalender’s welcome. The stream will disconnect after the rabbi’s final message. 

If you are using this method, before Shabbat begins, you will need to set your computer or tablet to “stay awake” over Shabbat:

  1. Make sure your device is plugged in, so it doesn’t lose power overnight.
  2. Turn off automatic sleep mode, so that you don’t have to wake it up or re-enter a password.
  3. For iPad, in Settings, under “Display and Brightness,” set Auto-Lock to “Never.”
  4. For PC, see https://www.help.k12.com/s/article/How-to-Disable-a-Screensaver. If using Windows 10, the final step in this process is to select “None” under Screen Saver. You will also need to go to Power and Sleep in the settings and set Screen and Sleep to turn off after “Never.”
  5. For Mac, in Control Panel, under “Desktop and Screen Saver,” change “Start After” to "Never.”
