Genizah Ceremony

According to the Talmud, the day after Rosh Hashanah was designated to bury all documents in which the name of God appears. When we bury these old books we may feel sad to see them go. We remember what we have learned from these books and from others like them, and how they have influenced our lives. As we read and study new books, we remember how we have grown and been inspired by books we have absorbed in the past.

 

Learning To Participate in Shabbat Services

Learning Shabbat services does not end at the Bat/Bar Mitzvah party.  Learn to lead Shabbat Services and more at your own pace.  We have available recordings of the Ma'ariv service by our own Julia Sirota.  They can be found at:   https://flemingtonyj.wordpress.com/hebrew-school-helpers/
You may find other recordings of Shabbat Services. The Rabbi suggests Rabbi Zimmerman's online recording:  http://www.sidduraudio.com/cd-tracks.html

To learn the parashah/Torah reading and chanting the haftarah, he suggests the following free apps:

for trope use:  Tropes Lite
for Torah readings/leyning use: Pocket Torah
for chanting the haftarah use: Pocket Haftarah

These recordings do not substitute for attending Hebrew School nor do they substitute for tutoring program. They are intended to supplement and help your at-home review and practice.
