Worship 101...will attempt to answer questions about the what/why/when/where/how of Jewish worship. This class is for those who never learned these things, or for those who want to understand the practices of this congregation.
The class will be presented in one session of 2 hours’ duration, once only, in the (secular) new year. Watch emails and listen for Bimah announcements for the date of the class.
Bnai Torah...for those who would like to lay claim to their Jewish heritage, whether they have read from the Torah before or not. The class will cover some aspects of Jewish history, Jewish religious thought, Jewish practice, and Jewish living. Students will be expected (as a class) to lead a worship service during which each one will read from the Torah scroll. Therefore, Hebrew reading proficiency is required, and may be acquired by taking the appropriate Hebrew class (see “current classes”). This class will meet weekly for about a year before the class service is held.
Watch emails and listen for Bimah announcements for the scheduling of this class. To join this class, please speak to the rabbi.
