What is the point of coming to services? Why do we say the prayers we do? Why are the tunes different than the ones I grew up with? If you’ve asked these questions,
you’re in good company! Join Rabbi Amy for a simple, clear overview of Shabbat liturgy so that you never again feel lost when you’re sitting in services. No RSVP necessary.
