Sponsored by Allie Alperovich and Dr. Jeremy Simon.

Are you interested in organizing a women’s tefillah service or a partnership minyan in your community? Learn what it takes to take on a more active role in the tefillah in your community. This interactive workshop will cover the basics--what is a gabbai, what does a gabbai do, what are the ritual and logistical responsibilities. Learn about a gabbai’s role in a women’s tefillah, partnership minyan, and megillah reading. No experience necessary. This workshop is open to women and men.
