Lay-Led Gates of Prayer Resumes

The Friday evening lay-led service is commencing for 5780 and will be held every Friday evening, unless posted otherwise, until June 2020. (Our tradition is to discontinue the service when, in summer, the regular 6:15 PM service moves to 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. Each service contains all the elements of the main service, including the Kaddish, and the current yahrzeit list for that week. All are welcome.

*A notice will be placed on the outside of Chapel door on the few occasions that the service will be held in the Beth Am Library.
