The Minyan and the Internet with Rabbi Michael Paley
When does Jewish custom and law change? The minyan and the Internet with Rabbi Michael Paley
In our long Jewish history we have always thought of a minyan as praying together. But what does, “together” mean? In this time of social distancing and electronic gathering, should that meaning and practice change? So many once firm boundaries have fallen in contemporary society so what are the concerns about “virtual” community and prayer? We will focus on these questions through text and history in this time of crisis and transformation.
