The Covid-19 pandemic and the closing of Temple Shalom’s building is driving us to learn new tools to meet communication and social distancing concerns. This page will help those who need support in using and managing the tools that give us social, educational and informational access to our Temple and our community.
Zoom – Zoom is a conferencing tool that allows users to meet online or view webinar presentations, with or without video. Zoom works on a Windows or Mac computer, an iPad, a tablet or a mobile phone. If you do not have a computer or device with video, you can use a landline telephone or a mobile phone to dial-in and join a Zoom session with voice only.
