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.
