Rabbi Lea Mühlstein, who is chairing the group responsible for preparing Liberal Judaism’s new prayerbook, is to deliver the sermon at the Community’s Shabbat Morning Service on Saturday 19th January. She will then lead a study session on the new liturgy from 1-2pm.
This is your opportunity not simply to learn about what’s intended for the prayerbook but to help shape its content, including having your say about some of the issues with which the working group is grappling, such as whether to include transliteration, inclusive language and attitudes to tradition and ritual.
The service will be held as normal at the Friends Meeting House in Friargate and will be proceeded by adult hebrew and Cheder for the children starting at 10am. It will be followed by a vegetarian shared lunch and will also include an opportunity to wish bon voyage to our member and friend, Hava Fleming, who is moving to Switzerland to be closer to her family. Finally there will be a collection on the day to pay for new trees to be planted in the Grove to mark the New Year for trees, TuBishvat.
