Prayer and Liturgy at BEKI with Rabbi Carl Astor

May 11, 2022    
7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

The heart of the BEKI community is the worship service. It informs us, energizes us, and challenges us. Once a month we will gather on Zoom for study and discussion so that we can better understand the language, the historical context, and the spiritual meaning of our prayers and liturgy. Rabbi Astor will lead the hour-long sessions. We will focus on particular prayers as well as the overall structure of the siddur and proceed through the order of the service, looking at the Hebrew words themselves as well as the deeper spiritual meanings of the prayers. This will not be a “class” but rather an open forum to learn together and to share ideas.”
