Baalei Tefillah Europe is the prayer training course for lay leaders offered by the European Union for Progressive Judaism. More than 30 students from Finland to Portugal are part of this year’s course. They receive online training on how to run religious services in the absence of a rabbi.
Taught in English, the course is led and taught by Rabbi Nathan Alfred, a Leo Baeck College graduate who has spent a decade working for Jewish communities across Europe and Asia, in Belgium, Luxembourg, and Singapore. Rabbi Alfred is also World Union’s Head of International Development and Community Building.
Enjoy a virtual Shabbat service led by aspiring prayer leaders from around Europe. The service takes place in Hebrew and English.
Guest speaker this month is Eytan Silberstein who will be speaking about Emouna. "Emouna, the amphitheater of religions", is a program that trains ministers of worship from different religious communities. The objective: to strengthen ties and mutual knowledge, and to further inter-faith connections.
