RSNS Clergy Connections
Every weekday at 12pm, tune in to a daily live broadcast from Rabbi Jodie, Rabbi Lee, or Cantor Eric. A yoga lesson, a new song, a mini-study session, you never know what bite-size piece of RSNS you’re going to get until you tune in! Whether you are a webinar maven, or brand-new to online conferencing, we think Zoom will be a valuable, easy-to-use tool for lots of online programming in the coming weeks.
