Important Update:  Check your email on/about Sept. 15 for a message containing your personalized link and details to access our streamed services and our Zoom offerings.  Emails were sent to all Barnert members in good standing and those issued tickets through our ticket request form.  Prior emails about how to access services should be disregarded.  If you did not receive an email and feel that you should have, click here.

This year, all of our High Holiday services will be offered online.  You are encouraged to login 15-30 minutes prior to the official start of each service to make sure your technology and links are working properly.  The High Holidays are special.  Logging in early gives time to shift into your own sacred space and frame of mind before each service.  We will be sharing video greetings from our members, music, and other inspirational content prior to and following each service.  

Streamed Services (Barnert's Website)

Given the demand to join us for our online worship and to minimize the technology barriers, Barnert has decided to stream most of its services to a dedicated page on our website.  Visit our High Holiday Schedule page to see which services will be streamed and which will be accessible via Zoom.

Those who requested tickets will receive an email on/around Sept. 13 with a personalized link to access our streamed services.  The email will also contain links to access our Zoom services.  These links will not be posted to our website.

If you are not already familiar with Zoom, we encourage you to do the following at least one day before services.  This gives you time to address any technical issue or questions you may have.

  • Install the Zoom app on the device(s) you will be using to join services.  Go to zoom.us/download
    - Select Zoom Client for Meetings for a computer/laptop.
    - Select Zoom Mobile Apps for phones/tablets.
  • Familiarize yourself with Zoom controls by viewing our quick reference guide.

If you register for tickets and do not receive an email, email highholidays@barnerttemple.org or before Sept. 17 (for Rosh Hashanah) and before Sept. 25 (for Yom Kippur).

Some Suggestions for Viewing Options

Many of you will be participating in our High Holiday services on devices like mobile phones, tablets and laptops.  Consider connecting your device to a large-screen TV if you can.  There are different ways to do this, depending on the type of TV you have, the software installed on it, etc.

Method 1:  Connect Your Device Via HDMI

You can purchase an adaptor and cable that allow you to attach your device to your TV.  The cables and adaptors are readily available on Amazon and will cost $20-$30.  This is the cheapest, low-tech way to get the job done.  For specific details, Google "How to connect [insert your device] to TV.

Method 2:  Chromecast, Apple TV or Amazon Fire

Use a device like an Apple TV, a Chromecast, or an Amazon Fire to connect wirelessly.  Chromecast and Amazon Fire cost between $30 and $50.  Apple TV is more expensive, around $150.

Method 3:  See What Your TV Can Do Out of the Box

If you have a smart TV, you might be able to connect your device wirelessly right out of the box.  Check your manual or Google to see if that's the case.
