Until his death this past December at the age of 91, David Margolin attended weekly Shabbat services at Congregation Shaarey Zedek in Southfield, Michigan, the Conservative synagogue where he belonged since his wedding was held there 66 years earlierWhen Alzheimer’s and declining health impaired his mobility, Margolin remained a Shabbat regular, “attending” live-streamed services on his iPad and singing along with the congregation as he watched from his Michigan home and his winter residence in Florida. “Live-streaming is important because if you can’t be there physically, you can still connect with your place of worship,” said Steve Margolin, David’s son and a past president of the synagogueHe tells how one elderly congregant, Bessie Glazier, dressed up on Shabbat as if she were going to shul when she attended services via live-stream from her home; she streamed Kol Nidre services right before she died in October 2016. “We are really trying to reach out to all of our members at various stages of their life journey, especially those who are ill, wherever they are,” said Rabbi Aaron Starr, spiritual leader at the 1,000-family suburban Detroit synagogue, which began live-streaming five years ago with a donation from the Richard and Sharon Brown Live-Streaming Fund.var googletag = googletag || {};
