Wednesday, August 24, 7:00pm – Zoom
Thursday, September 1, 10:30am – Hybrid
Join Rabbi Chaiken for an introduction to our new machzor (prayerbook for the High Holidays) Mishkan HaNefesh. This course offers a chance to study the meaning of the traditional prayers, to explore some of the contemporary poetry, and to become more familiar with the layout of the prayerbook before we join together and pray from it during Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. No experience required, and each of these sessions will follow a similar format. All are encouraged to attend for a chance to see how the adoption of this new prayerbook will help us honor our traditions while embracing innovation.
