Florence rabbi leads online weekday services

Rabbi Nancy Tunick of Nashville, who serves Temple B’nai Israel in Florence, is now doing online Ma’ariv services through the Sim Shalom online Jewish Universalist synagogue.

Tunick is a founding rabbi for the Union of Jewish Universalist Congregations, a movement that also includes Rabbi Judy Ginsburgh of Alexandria. She will be one of four rabbis leading the online services, on Wednesdays at 6 p.m. Central time. Other services are held Monday to Friday, and 10:30 a.m. on Saturdays.

A live chat feature allows participants to type in the name of those in need of healing, while singing the Mi Shebeirah prayer, as well as names for the Mourner’s Kaddish and Yahrzeits.

The services can be accessed here.
