Livestreaming & Hybrid Services

Since the beginning of the Covid era we have been using Zoom as our virtual method for broadcasting our worship services

We gather for worship twice a month at 10:30 am Eastern Time, either "hybrid style" (in person AND online), or online only when restrictions limit in-person activities. We evaluate the safety of in-person gatherings depending on mandates about the current pandemic as well as inclement weather-related challenges. Please check our calendar for schedule details, or use the Contact Us page or email with any questions. We really want to serve you, so we look forward to hearing from you!

Please join us through Zoom. You will also need the passcode: Swedenborg

Watch archived services on our YouTube page. We hold our gatherings at Congregation B'nai Torah's gracious and spacious building at 225 Boston Post Rd, Sudbury, MA

Guidelines for Zoom Participation

To simplify and standardize our hybrid church experience, here are some guidelines for everyone’s participation before, during, and after:
  • 10:00-10:15 am: Zoom meeting will be opened and the tech systems will be tested. Remote participants please join anytime, but until 10:15, Zoom will be used for testing.
  • 10:15-10:25 am: Welcome and fellowship prior to service. Zoom will be displayed in B’nai Torah on the big TV/Monitor. Remote participants please have cameras on and unmute yourselves to talk.
  • 10:25-10:27 am: The Zoom host starts the recording of the service and the prelude music begins. Remote participants please mute your mics for the whole service. For tech issues, text the Zoom host or co-host.
    • During the church service, remote participants may want to set your Zoom to “Speaker view” to highlight the B’nai Torah “Chancel camera” (including the view of the TV/Monitor).
  • Immediately after the service: Discussion and fellowship start. Zoom will be displayed on the big TV/Monitor. All participants please turn cameras on and unmute to talk.
    • For the discussion, remote participants may want to set your Zoom to “Gallery view” to see all Zoom participants.
