Welcome back and Refresh: Reacquainting ourselves with the Sanctuary. With Rabbi Spitzer and Cantor Aronzon
It has been a while! Let us take a look at the sanctuary and the chapel with new eyes
Is there something in the stained glass designs that we never noticed before?
Let’s take out a Torah —
How do we find our place in the Torah?
How do we roll the Torah?
How do we take an aliyah (usual and modified?)
How do we do a hagbah (usual and modified)?
(and who was the genius who thought that lifting our most sacred object over our heads was a good idea?)
How to do a gelilah?
What are we wondering about in the room?
Why do we sit, stand, bow, raise up etc
Shul etiquette – when to walk around and when not
