Dec. 1, 8 & 15 from 7-8:30 Adult Education classesRabbi Tamar will teach a series of classes titled, The Voice of Our Prayers, in December. In this class we will analyze some of the individual voices that call out to us from the pages of the prayer book and express varying ways of relating to God and understanding the purpose of our lives. Perhaps we will find echoes of our own voices in the siddur as well. This will be an opportunity to dive into the new Siddur Lev Shalem.
