As we work to remove in-person interactions within our community and across the country, Jewish Center of the Hamptons has been working to create a virtual community for our members. For many, this is a new concept. Yet we recognize that for the time being, this pandemic requires that we adapt our lives to a new reality.
Below you will find a list of virtual classes, live-streamed worship services, and other online experiences that can be accessed from your homes.
-Rabbi Joshua Franklin & Cantor/Rabbi Debra Stein
Visit jcoh.org/live to stream our Shabbat Evening Service (Fridays at 6:00pm) and our Shabbat Morning Service (Saturdays at 10:00am) and to find a digital copy of our prayer book and weekly readings.
Prayer Books (Curbside Pick-Up)
Prayer books are available to be borrowed from the JCOH so that you can have them on hand while livestreaming our services via jcoh.org/live. We have sanitized and individually bagged prayer books that will be placed on a cart located on the porch outside the front door to the administrative building here at 44 Woods Lane in East Hampton. If you come by to borrow a book, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know.

Classes and Community Events
History of Antisemitism
Fridays at 12:15pm
The term antisemitism may only be a little over a hundred years old, but the phenomenon of antisemitism dates back millennia. Learn about the many heads of this historic hydra, and discuss how we might be able to fight the recent resurgence of it that we have seen around the globe.
Saturdays at 12:00pm
Explore the wisdom of Judaism’s most sacred and ancient book, the Torah. Each week, we’ll uncover a new text that will offer relevant and meaningful perspectives on life.
Saturdays at 7:00pm
Tune in for Havdalah with Rabbi Josh and Cantor Debi. Havdalah is an experience for your whole family, and a great way to close Shabbat. Sing some songs, reflect on the week, and bless the sacred transition moving into a new week.
Coffee and Catchup with the Clergy
Mondays at 12:00pm
Join the Rabbi and Cantor virtually for conversations on the subjects and issues that are important to you. Use this time as an informal way to catch up with each other and with your clergy. This is a great opportunity to build community virtually in a time where doing so physically is limited.
