the Cyber Seder
Rabbi Keith Stern of Newton’s Temple Beth Avodah… plans to place computer screens on the Seder table and include his traveling children via Web video connection.
Linda Freeman Goodspeed will also be placing screens on her Seder table this year and firing up the WiFi.
Congregation Shirat Hayam, a Conservative synagogue in Swampscott, is already webcasting — or as they’ve dubbed it, “Shulcasting” — its weekly shabbat services on multiple channels, providing the service free to nursing homes. The temple will also webcast a Seder service Tuesday, featuring Jewish blues musician Saul Kaye.
