Ritual Re-enactments: Becoming Moshe, a Mother, and a High Priest in the Yamim Noraim Tefillah
Rabbanit Leah Sarna / September 8, 2020
This series will focus on core pieces of the Selichot, Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur liturgies. Specifically, we will explore the roles that our liturgy asks us to step into on these days and at these key moments.
This class aims to enrich participants' experiences of these special tefillot, particularly in a year where many will be praying at home or in truncated synagogue services.
