Say Kaddish Online at Sim Shalom

  (February 27, 2013)

New York, NY (PRWEB) February 27, 2013

Sim Shalom the innovative online Jewish Universalist synagogue is at it again!

Due to the overwhelming success of their weekly online Shabbat Services, Sim Shalom is proud to start offering weeknight Maariv Services beginning March 4, 2013.

These nightly services will be hosted by Rabbis ordained by Sim Shaloms affiliated Rabbinical School,JSLI- The Jewish Spiritual Leaders Institute.


These short evening worship services offer the Jewish community the ability to say Kaddish, says Rabbi Steve Blane, founder and Spiritual Leader of Sim Shalom. Mourners who are sitting shiva or those observing 'Yahrtseit (the yearly anniversary of the passing of a loved one) are often in need of an online option as attending a local house of worship is not feasible or possible. The technology and our wonderful rabbis afford the Jewish Community this terrific opportunity!

In the Jewish tradition, the Mourners Kaddish is a prayer of sanctification. It is meant to be said daily for up to eleven months to mourn a death. This prayer is observed even by the most unobservant Jews to show respect for loved ones who have passed. According to custom, the Mourners Kaddish is only said in the presence of a Minyan (ten people). According to the custom of the Sim Shalom people are welcome to say Kaddish regardless of the number of people in attendance.

Rabbi Galit Levy-Slater, Rabbi Rose Lyn Jacob and Rabbi Miriam Sachs Leshem will lead the community in these services throughout the month of March. Once a week, the Maariv services will be led by a lay-leader- Rabbi Steves daughter Megan Blane. Megan is the administrator for Sim Shalom and JSLI.

As always, Sim Shaloms services are broadcast live online. Services will be held Monday-Thursday evenings at 7PM EST via Livestream, an online streaming service and can be viewed at the following URL:
