Synagogue Skills Class

(Everything you wanted to know about what goes on during Services…but were afraid to ask)


Which of the following terms might you hear at Services?  Yahrzeit, Yizkor, Yahtzee, Yenta.

 Have you ever wondered if there was a difference between an “Honor” and an “Aliyah”?

Do you know what to do if you are given an Aliyah?  Where do I go?  When do I go?  What do I do after my Aliyah?

 Have you ever wondered if there is a “correct” way to do a “Hagbah” and/or a “G’Lilah”? Are you sure what a Hagbah and G’Lilah are?  Would you like a chance to do one?  Have you ever seen a Torah “up close and personal”?

 Have you ever wondered if there is a “correct” way to carry a Torah?  What do you do if you are given the honor of “sitting” with the Torah?

 Would you like to know what a “Gabbai” does when he/she is on the bima during Services?  Would you like to know how you can become a Gabbai?

 For answers to these and any other Jewish Life/prayer service questions you may have, please join us on Sunday morning, March 19, 2017 at 11AM in the Blumberg Chapel.  We will be finished by noon!
