Consultation on New Masorti Siddur
Work is beginning on planning for the potential creation of UK Masorti’s first ever siddur – and we want your views! Dedicated in memory of Rina Wolfson, z”l, Siddur Kol Rina will be a long-term project which hopefully will reflect the practices of our diverse communities and unite them in a shared resource in the future. R’ Adam from SAMS ( St Albans Masorti Synagogue ) will be leading the project and wants to speak with members of all of our Masorti communities to hear their views on what they would like to see in a siddur. Join him on Zoom at 5.00 pm on Sunday 21st August to learn more about the project and contribute to the planning process for this exciting project. Please contact Gill for the Zoom details.
