Lay-Led Gates of Prayer Resumes

The Friday evening lay-led service is commencing for 5778 and will be held every Friday evening, unless posted otherwise, until the end of June 2018. (Our tradition is to discontinue the service when, in summer, the regular 6:15 PM service is performed in the Outdoor Chapel.) All are welcome to attend and participate in this convenient, early service. The service is always concluded prior to 6:00 PM should one wish to attend the main service. 

The prayerbook, which is provided at the service, is The Gates of Prayer, published by Central Conference of American Rabbi 5755/1994. (These prayerbooks are made available, then returned at the conclusion of each service.) Each service contains all the elements of the main service, including the Memorial Portion, and the current yartzeit list for that week. All, are welcome.
