In an earlier post, I wrote about the increasing number of free High Holiday prayer services that had blossomed around the country this year including the Jewish Television Network’s virtual Kol Nidre service which was offered online. I received several comments about that blog from people who decried the loss of community such isolated prayer would promote. Jay Sanderson, the CEO and Executive Producer of Jewish Television Network and soon to be President of the Los Angeles Jewish Federation, sent this summary of responses, Kol Nidre Comments 2009, from that online service that are worth reading.
It’s clear to me that JTN not only met an important need but created quite a wonderful global Jewish village if for only an hour or two.
