Shabbat Morning Service - guest speaker Steve Hammel
This participatory service takes place in the main sanctuary, lasts from approximately 9:30-11:45AM, and is regularly led by Rabbi Eric Solomon. The most creative part of the prayer service takes place during shaharit from approximately 9:30-10:15AM when Rabbi Jenny Solomon assists Rabbi Eric Solomon and leads the congregation in meditative Hebrew chanting and meditation. The second part of the service, the Torah service, takes place from approximately 10:15-11:30AM and includes the Torah reading, the Haftarah (prophetic reading), and an active discussion of the weekly Torah portion. The final section (Musaf), lasting from approximately 11:30-11:45AM, includes an opportunity for children to ascend the bimah (front) and lead a portion of the service. The service concludes with the Mourner’s Kaddish and a closing song. After the service, the entire congregation is invited into the social hall for a Kiddush luncheon.
For this Shabbat, we welcome Steve Hammel as our guest speaker. He and his wife Renee recently traveled to Poland and Israel with the March of the Living. He will share highlights of this trip with the congregation.
