For an even more immersive Jewish experience, visit, where you can literally tweet your prayers and have them placed in the western wall without having to go to Israel.

They are finally catching up with the God-fearing Christians who can't be bothered spending an hour a week in church.

What a wonderful gift to those homebound and unable to get to a temple.

Finally, we are seeing that it is a matter of the heart, and that the spirit rests within us and not a stone building.

I attended a reform Rosh Hashanah service online Friday night that I very much enjoyed and would recommend.
It came from Florida (Hollywood, Florida). I am over 1200 miles away from that synagogue, but was thrilled to be part of their congregation. Another friend in my town cyber-attended it while we were connected by phone and a third friend in Florida also cyber-attended it with us.
We liked the respectful rabbi and cantor and familiar traditional reform service.
