Hearing

For those with diminished hearing, we offer a convenient headphone listening system, which provides additional amplification. This audio loop system is worn Walkman-style, with comfortable headsets. There’s a single on-off-volume switch, and the unit will amplify any sounds coming from the public address system. They can be found in the drawers on top of the book case in the foyer. Further, for cochlear implants and for those wearing hearing aids with a built-in and enabled “telephone” feature (also known as a telecoil), the audio system is piped directly into the hearing aid. Not all hearing aids have this feature, so check with your audiologist if you’re not certain.

Seeing

For those who need larger print, we have Vivitar illuminated magnifiers to borrow when reading from the prayerbook. They can be found in the drawers on top of the book case in the foyer.

Ramps

Our beautiful front door and Bimah ramps provide improved access to the building and Bimah.  We also have a wheelchair accessible bathroom located on the main floor.

Remote Listening  

While enjoying services and programs amongst members helps build connections within our community, should you find yourself unable to get here in person, you can listen to most services and programs in the sanctuary via our audio streaming link.

The streaming system supports all PC/Mac/Mobile platforms, however some devices might require installation of a helper app on your device to listen to the stream.  First, try clicking on the following quicklink, if that loads the stream, then you are all set:

Click on this streaming link

It may appear as if the page is still loading, but once the microphones are in use, you should be able to hear anything coming over the sound system.

If the link above does not work for your device, you will need to install the free VLC media player app. It can be downloaded from https://videolan.org. For mobile devices, VLC can also be downloaded from Apple’s App Store and Google Play store.

Within VLC, select "Open Network", and then enter the following URL into the Network Stream field: http://tinyurl.com/BIAudio2.  The VLC app should remember this link for future events.
