This course, not only for beginners, will analyze the meaning, structure and choreography of the weekday, Shabbat and festival services. Practically, we will look at the exercise routine of prayer in Jewish tradition: what to expect at each type of service, what to bring on which days, what to wear, and the details of when to stand, bow and other physical gestures. When to leave, when not to leave, and what to do when receiving various types of honours.
No knowledge of Hebrew is required and it is not necessary to purchase any prayerbooks. We will use the Beth Tzedec weekday and Shabbat books.
