Shema Koleinu, The Masorti Prayer Skills Project

From the specific music and liturgy of our services to considering what it really means to ‘do’ teshuvah, choose how you’d like to connect with this new year. You can still join us for the last session in this series.

Rabbi Jeremy Gordon & Cantorial Lead David Djemal and the Avodah Service
7pm, Tuesday 19th September, Online

In Temple times, at Yom Kippur, the High Priest would enter the Holy of Holies and recite the ineffable name of God. The people would prostrate themselves, blood was sprinkled. Today this ritual survives as a section of the Musaf prayer on Yom Kippur. It’s beautiful, elegiac and amazingly tuneful. Join Rabbi Jeremy and David for a tour of the liturgy and history of this section of the Yom Kippur service and also an enquiry into the contemporary value of this ancient liturgy.
