Reform, so it doesn’t matter as much to me, but how permissible is it to either have recording/streaming on an automatic timer OR have a Shabbos goy operate the video and microphone equipment so that services could be streamed?
On the same note, could one program their TV or PC so that it would automatically stream a service without any input during shabbos? Same goes for Yom Kippur.
Because of COVID, there is a hard limit on the number of folks in the synagogue, and many of the congregants are elderly anyway. Is there a way to observe or record a digital broadcast within halacha? It doesn’t seem to violate the spirit of the law, but how about the letter of it?
