Building Shabbat Community: Introduction by Chancellor Arnold M. Eisen
The Federation of Jewish Men’s Clubs (FJMC) recently released Building Shabbat Community: Through Meaningful Alternative Prayer Service Experiences, which includes a forward by Chancellor Arnold M. Eisen.
“This guide wisely meets people where they are,” Chancellor Eisen writes. “It does not assume knowledge of or comfort with the synagogue service, and yet has much to offer even veteran shul-goers. You will find helpful hints to synagogue choreography, suggestions that may enhance your experience of tefillah, and precious reassurance that your personal questions about prayer are widely shared.”
