By Cantor Elizabeth Sacks - Senior Cantor, Temple Emanuel Denver
By Dr. Janet Walton - Professor of Worship, Union Theological Seminary
Featuring Noah Aronson, Voice and Piano, and Linda Kent, Dancer
Worship and prayer have always been at the center of Jewish life, crystallizing and communicating our values and bringing the community together as one. As we move into new paradigms of Jewish life, how can we continue to create meaningful and transformative worship experiences? In this session, we will explore the purpose and the boundaries of Jewish worship. Questions to consider will include: Why explore new options? In trying to enlarge the Jewish tradition, what is the scope of our options? We will explore many different aspects of experience including, use of words, language, dance and sound.
