One Prayer Deep Dive: A Siddur Book Club
8:00 am Tuesday, August 3 (follows Minyan)
If you’ve ever sat in services and wished that you could better understand just one prayer at a time before moving onto the next one, this class is for you! Led by Rabbi Lauren, we’ll gather on Zoom to journey prayer-by-prayer through the morning service, looking at just one prayer a week (and occasionally, over multiple weeks). No Hebrew knowledge or prayer expertise required... just bring your questions, curiosity, and a siddur/prayerbook if you have one (we’ll also be sharing text on screen for those who don’t have a siddur at home).

Women's Group Meeting @ COH
