if you follow the link you do not need to type in the password.
Paula J
54:57
Richard, thank you for everything!
Sorel Reisman
55:47
if you use the link and get in without a password then what's to keep it from bombing again?
Susie Goldsmith
56:19
I didn't need a password today, either.
Richard Sampson
58:08
For those concerned about not having to enter a password:
Richard Sampson
01:02:03
You were not prompted to enter your password. Why is that? It's because the link you clicked ALREADY contains the password. Now: Each of you received your own unique password. This means that: Anyone else trying to use your link, to try and sign in as you: The link will not work.

01:02:35
Thank you!
Varda Farber
01:02:36
I also was not asked to enter the password we were given
Suzanne
01:03:51
So if I gave the link to a friend and new participant using
Suzanne
01:05:01
using the password will let them in?
Wendy Liebow
01:07:17
I shared my link and it worked for others
Richard Sampson
01:08:35
After this meeting: I will share a step you should all be taking. You should each create your own account on Zoom (and if possible, download the App). This will ensure the link works only for you.
Wendy Liebow
01:09:10
but not everyone uses facebook and Rachel asked us to share the link
Susie Goldsmith
01:09:29
I have Zoom...but I still need to be able to get into Rachel's meeting. Guess I don't understand how that would work.
Richard Sampson
01:09:37
Don't worry: This will make more sense after the meeting :)
Rena Orenstein
01:12:10
Rachel is singing along. Sweet.
Richard Sampson
01:16:29
We will also change settings for future meetings, requiring you to manually enter your password. Therefore, the link will not work for other people if you do not have a Zoom account.
Stanley Kay
01:17:17
The sound seems very choppy today for me.
Barb Kessel
01:17:30
for me too
Sharon
01:17:33
yes, very choppy
Susie Goldsmith
01:17:47
Agreed
Sharon
01:17:49
right now it’s better, though
Sarah Schachter
01:17:53
I agree
Suzanne
01:18:04
I never hear Rachel as well as anyone else.
Barb Kessel
01:18:28
now imposdible
Frona Kahn
01:18:44
It’s bandwidth. if some of us go off video, sound will improve.
Richard Sampson
01:18:48
To those having sound issues:
Elana Kling Perkins
01:19:11
should we all sign off?
Bob G
01:19:17
Also still some people unmuted?
Richard Sampson
01:19:22
It depends on each of your connections
Frona Kahn
01:19:29
no don’t sign off. just stop video
Richard Sampson
01:19:30
Please do not sign off.
A Ginsburg
01:19:32
Maybe everyone could go off video. Sound is impossible.
herbengelsberg
01:19:53
I think it helps if there are fewer people on video
Richard Sampson
01:19:56
I'm having nearly perfect sound: Your connections will vary.
Iris Beth Weiner
01:19:59
Maybe some of us should go off video to free up some bandwith. There are over 200 of us,..
Frona Kahn
01:20:17
done
Wendy Liebow
01:21:13
I normally have no problem, but yesterday and today there were intermittent issues.
Richard Sampson
01:22:07
Again: Sound/video quality will vary for everyone. Nothing is choppy on my end.
Richard Sampson
01:22:38
Given that there are so many people here: Please bear in mind that "choppiness" is likely on your end :(

love everybody singing! grew up hearing this song… takes me back to “old” israel… all my Israeli teachers at my Hebrew Day School shared these songs with us
Barb Kessel
01:43:17
and then Yerushalayim shel Barzel...yehoram Gaon. heartwrenching.
lauren shachar
01:43:49

My hebrew isn’t that good, but it still brings tears to my eyes.
Elizabeth Gordon
01:52:26
This song has always broken my heart. Along with the lyrics, the tune is one of yearning.

🙏👌
Solange Tajchman
01:53:05
the music itself has such a different tone - longing..
lauren shachar
01:53:26
the words are very powerful in Hebrew. it is difficult to translate the emotion.
Judy Siegal
01:53:43
But the music conveys the emotion as well.
Frona Kahn
01:54:03
yes, remember in hebrew school and in yehuda hatzir
Solange Tajchman
01:54:25
I agree - the music speaks does speak in a very different voice and tone
Elizabeth Gordon
01:57:50
can we leave the words up while we listen?
