Join our community and special guest Lior Liebling, featured in the powerful, award winning film “Praying with Lior”, for this special Shabbat service as we celebrate
The film follows Lior – now in his late twenties – in his preparation to become Bar Mitzvah as a child with Down’s Syndrome whose mother had died when he was six years old. The movie is a powerful testament to how family, community, and Jewish life create joy, love, and support in Lior’s life and in all of our lives. Lior, who still loves to davven (pray), will be co-lead services with Rabbi Simcha, and will speak about his life with us.
Our Shabbat service is a blend of traditional and contemporary prayer, music and silence, teaching and discussion. Join us as we co-create a sense of Shabbat that is joyful and nourishing for each of us as individuals, and for all of us as a community.
