Hebrew Reading

This new series will teach us how to improve reading fluency and to understand the content you are reading in the Prayerbook.


Course for Prayer Leaders

If you already have some familiarity with Shabbat morning services and are interested in learning how to lead parts of musaf, the additional service, and concluding hymns, please consider joining a class with Carl Shuman on Sunday mornings.
