A Journey Into the Siddur
Shabbat Morning
With Cantor Mark Levine
Fridays at Noon

The Siddur is a theological “tel”, a building of our peoples ‘concerns and beliefs upon those of previous generations.  It is an encounter with more than 3,000 years of Jewish living and thought, Jewish celebration, and Jewish tragedy.  Join Cantor Levine in unpacking the depth and brilliance of the Shabbat morning service structurally, historically, and theologically.
