Tefilat Nashim meets on the weeks listed below at 9:45 am in the Young Israel of Sharon Beit Midrash. In case of a bat mitzvah the start time is 9:30 in order to coordinate with the main shul. All dates are shaharit on Shabbat unless noted otherwise.
About the Service:
P’sukeh D’Zimrah, is often lead off by a young girl. Another Kehilah member takes over as a Chazanit leads through the Shacharit service. Our Torah portion consists of taking the Torah out of the Aron Kodesh and then Laining the first three portions aloud, with different woman or girls reading each Aliyah (no B’rachot are recited). A D’var Torah follows, and then the Haftarah is chanted by another Kehilah member. The service continues with the Musaf Amidah and then one or more of our younger girls leads us in the concluding prayers. During the Tefilah group, songs are song together, especially some selections during the Shacharit and Musaf Amidah.
Every Simhat Torah we lain V'zot HaBeracha as many times as we have lainers. This happens while the men are receiving their aliyot. It is also an opportunity if there are any women who are interested in benching gomel. If you would like to participate in this very special experience, please contact Cheryl Harris. We can also teach new lainers for this parsha. After the laining is finished Rabbi Sendor will give a dvar Torah.
Two other special davenings we have are on Purim and Tisha B'Av. We lain Megilat Esther on Purim morning and Eicha on Tisha B'Av evening. New lainers are always welcome.
If you are interested in participating, leading the tefila, laining or giving a Dvar Torah, or would like additional information Julie Galler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
