You can still enjoy Jewish Life programs online while we’re sheltering in place. These programs are all live streamed on Zoom or other online platforms.

Zoom is a live video streaming service that you can access for free. Just click the link for your class. It’s pretty user-friendly, but if you need help please click here for an online tutorial or click here for a helpful video that shows you exactly what to do.
