Getting a Handle on the Shabbat Morning Service

In this mini-series, we will explore the literal, theological and symbolical meanings of prayers you encounter week by week in our brown prayer book. We will focus on the prayers’ structure and meaning and ask ourselves what spirituality means to us and how it manifests.

Specifically, we will delve deeper into the main three sections of our Westminster Synagogue Shabbat Morning service and learn about the overall structure of morning services. Further, we will explore how one part connects to the next and what to do with our bodies, thoughts, and minds when we pray.

Please join us for Learning Thursdays on Zoom from 19:30-21:00:
