TEL AVIV TIKVAH ZOOM GROUP OF ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS

In the light of the COVID-19 Pandemic, we have created online daily meetings via ZOOM for the Tel Aviv Tikvah Group of Alcoholics Anonymous although any AA member outside of Tel Aviv is welcome to join. Our primary purpose is to carry the message of recovery using modern technology as physical meeting places become unavailable or unsafe due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR OUR ZOOM MEETINGS

ZOOM is a video conferencing service that allows us to hear and see each other, bringing us closer to having a genuine face-to-face meeting. Unfortunately, there can be a bit of a learning curve to using it the first time. Remember:

  1. Click or tap any link above in the schedule to join any one of our AM or PM ZOOM meetings
  2. If you don’t have the zoom app on your phone or your computer you’ll be asked to download it
  3. Tap the meeting link to join
  4. Click or Tap “Join with Video” or “Join Without Video” depending on your preference
  5. Click or Tap “Call using Internet Audio” **VERY IMPORTANT** (otherwise we won’t be able to hear you)
  6. You’re in! You can mute yourself by tapping the screen, or moving your mouse over the video to see the menu, and tapping the microphone mute icon

Suggestions for Participants in Virtual Meetings:

  • Everyone should mute their phone unless they want to share, or want to interject a laugh or other non disruptive sound
  • If two people try to share at the same time, the secretary can break the tie if needed.
  • 7th Tradition:
    • We continue to have expenses so please give what you can. For those located in Israel, please download BIT ( via Apple Store here/ Android here) and to make donations to the Tikvah Group bank account, please send to Brandon at 0527567211.
    • For those located outside of Israel, if you would like to make a 7th tradition donation, please text Brandon (+972-52-756-7211)
