About the Event
Join us on Shabbat HaḤodesh for a pan-Sephardi, fully egalitarian shabbat morning service - our first ever. We will be reading Parashat Tazria’ and celebrating Rosh Ḥodesh Nissan. Please also stay for a vegan light lunch / kiddush after the service - bring food to share!
You are welcome whether it is your first Sephardi service or first egalitarian service. Our services are completely peer-led and we encourage everyone to lead a section of the morning. Opportunities range from leading full services to just single paragraphs and everything inbetween, along with various practical ritual roles as well - see below for a full list. Please get in touch if you are at all interested and of course we have help available for first time leaders to learn different Sephardi tunes/nusach.
We need people for:
- Shaḥarit (from Nishmat through the Amidah)
- Each paragraph of the Shəma
- Torah Service (opening)
- Opening the Ark
- Carrying the scroll
- Unwrapping the scroll
- Raising the scroll
- Being called up to the Torah
- Reading from the Torah
- Reading the Haftorah
- Torah service (from Ashré)
- Birkat Hamazon
Just message if you're interested, and don't worry at all if it's your first time - all the better! We'll give all the support you need.
