On 26 October, Cantor Craig Mail led an untraditional Friday service
at the Temple that was both well received and well attended. The service was unique in that it
made extensive use of the new TV monitor in our all-purpose area to provide traditional Hebrew
singing and in the form of the service which did not follow the traditional Erev Shabbat Hebrew
prayer service. In fact, no use was made of the usual Hebrew prayer book. Many thanks to Craig
for trying out a new approach to the Temple’s services.
Any feedback relative this type of
service would be much appreciated as would all suggestions for conducting services that would
be more appealing to our younger congregants and, hopefully, more attractive to potential new
Temple members. You can pass in your feedback and suggestions at 617-846-1390 or at
