Developing Our Ritual Prayer Skills:

This year a goal for our congregation is to increase the number of individuals who can lead worship services on Shabbat and weekdays, and recite Torah and Haftarah as well as Gabbaim to help with the Torah service. There will be opportunities for group lessons on weekdays and Shabbat and one on one. John Roncz has offered to work with people interested in learning Haftarah and Rachel Bruell is willing to work with people on Torah reading. Please contact Rabbi Friedland if you would like to develop these skills!
