What are we saying/praying when we recite and sing the Friday evening Shabbat prayers? Using a Beit Midrash format, we will explore the prayers of the Friday evening services, Kabbalat Shabbat (welcoming Shabbat) and Arvit (the evening service). A vibrant Beit Midrash setting is an exciting and supportive place to engage with the course content, while simultaneously building friendships and community. Learning together in a Beit Midrash format you will have the opportunity to learn from the instructor, explore the weekly class content using guided questions in small groups and conclude each session with a wrap up and final teaching from your teacher.
