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?

    • Hebrew names

    • 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
