Updated Info Regarding Healing Services
If you would like to participate in the virtual healing service that Hazzan Glantz has scheduled on Friday mornings, from 8:15 AM to 9:00 AM, please send him an email at Hazzan Glantz can also arrange a healing service at another time that is convenient to both of you. Again, contact him by email.

Here is a link to a healing video made by Hazzan Glantz.

From Rav Shai:

For some of you, the prospect of having two seders, by yourselves, might be intimidating. AJ to the rescue!

For the first seder, we have four families who will be hosting through Zoom and have graciously extended their seder table to the community. The Zoom links to their seders and starting times will be put on our website next week. Feel free to do a seder crawl and pop into more than one seder. Warning: if you engage in serial seders, all cereal should be sold prior to the seder. Here are your virtual hosts:

Pamela Maman — teen boys with assorted and sundry family members — much singing.

The Glantzes — Hazzan, Dayna, Rose, and Rory will be raising their voices in song and there could even be a virtual drop-in from the holy land.

Allan Freedman and Amy Rappaport — lots of explaining and teaching.

The Blitsteins — Parents and pre-teens using children's haggadot.

For the second seder, the Hazzan and I will be leading a children's program from 6:00 PM to 6:30 PM. Beginning at 7:00 PM, we will lead a full seder geared toward a more mature audience. Our best guesstimate is that we'll break for dinner at roughly 8:20 PM and return for the seder conclusion at 9:00 PM. Unfortunately, there might not be much in the way of interaction, but I promise it will be entertaining and educational.

Feel free to share our links with your family and friends who might be interested. Also, if you would like to participate in the second seder, please let me know.

Help a Congregant Connect to AJ and the World
Do you have an old tablet or laptop you aren't using and wouldn't mind parting with? We have some congregants who don't have any way to connect with AJ's virtual services and programs because they don't have devices. Call the AJ office at 215.635.6611 and leave a message on the voicemail so we can arrange to get it from you.

Looking for Passover information, especially useful during this time? Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia has a webpage with resources for online seders and educational webinars, information on where to get kosher for Passover food, plus fun stuff to share with your family! Click here.
