Learn more about the Friday night service

My good friend, Rabbi Ruth Adar, is teaching a class on the Reform synagogue Friday night service. She’s friendly, fun and you’ll learn something too!


There is an internal logic to the order in which Jews say the prayers in the service, but it is not always easy to see. Have you ever wished that you understood what we are doing in the service? This class will examine the Friday evening Erev Shabbat service as well as some of the key prayers. No Hebrew is required.

Four Thursdays beginning Feb. 7
7:30 to 9:00pm
Temple Sinai, 2808 Summit St., Oakland
cost: $50

More Jewish Experience is a new series, designed to expand one’s Jewish knowledge beyond the basics in the areas of Jewish prayer, Jewish texts, and Jewish ethics. While it is designed as a follow-up to Introduction to the Jewish Experience, all interested students are welcome.
