Welcome to Kol Ami’s Virtual Bet Midrash! Each month we will be studying a new part of the Shabbat morning liturgy. Over the course of the year, participants should gain a new understanding of the structure of our worship service, as well as much greater familiarity with the prayers and rituals themselves. Click here for an overview of the contents of the Shabbat morning service.
Monthly Bet Midrash sessions with Rabbi Langner introduce the prayers we are focusing on. Weekly coaching sessions are led by Jane Petkofsky, Susan Freiband, and Dr. Richard Ruth via Zoom. Please contact Elenor Hodges, our coordinator, if you are interested in joining: email@example.com
