Several years ago Judy and Peter Braunfeld began leading a monthly Classical Reform Shabbat service in the Davis Chapel. The service is mainly in English, and uses a new, modern, egalitarian version of the much loved Classical Reform prayer book, the Union Prayer Book. Judy usually leads us in singing, while Peter gives a drash, and leads a brief discussion of the Torah portion. The service is followed by an oneg that allows us to meet new friends and catch up with old ones.
While we no longer meet monthly, we gather each November to celebrate the “anniversary” of the creation of this service. This year’s English Service will take place on November 11, 2017. We are a small group that enjoys worshipping together in a language we all understand. New worshippers are always welcome.
