Learner's Shabbat
Have you ever sat through Shabbat services and had questions. When do we bow? Why? How do I know when to stand or sit? What is this prayer all about? Why is this line louder than others?... Now is your chance to get all these questions and more answered. Join Stephanie in the Sanctuary at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 27th.  We will walk through the Shabbat service, stopping for questions and explanations.
