OSTNS Virtual Community via Zoom

During the time that the shul is closed OSTNS has transitioned to a virtual community of prayer and learning. Below is information about the virtual classes, minyanim and programming available through Zoom. This page will be updated each week, so please check back often for the most current list of classes.

Zoom Minyanim Week of 5/24

Mincha/Marriv (Sunday - Wednesday @ 8:05 pm)

All minyanim via Zoom at https://zoom.us/j/3127816941 or via phone at 646-558-8656, 3127816941#.

In Zoom minyanim we participate as follows: 

- We pray together and answer Amen to the blessings of our community. We also declare Barchu—blessing the name of Hashem. 
- We also listen and respond affirmatively as mourners recite the Kaddish prayer. 
- We recite special prayers for the sick and for the health of our front line health workers. 
- We read the appropriate Torah passage from a chumash. 
- The service concludes with a spiritual teaching from our sacred tradition.
