Rabbinical Student, Mimi Micner, Scheduled at Temple

     Starting this November, Mimi Micner, a rabbinical student at the Hebrew College in Newton Centre, is scheduled to initiate once-a-month Friday night services at the Temple. In addition, she plans to attend Shabbat morning services every other Saturday.

     Founded in 1921, Hebrew College provides a pluralistic Jewish education and training for Jewish professionals. Hebrew College's legacy has a strong commitment to pluralism, with an openness to all forms of Jewish expression, commitment and practice.

     This November, Mimi is scheduled to be at the Saturday morning service on 10 November (Shabbat services start at 9:30 a.m.) and she will begin her monthly Friday night services on Friday, 16 November at 6:30 p.m. Mimi’s schedule is still not 100% finalized, so if you want to meet Temple Tifereth Israel’s new rabbinical student, check with the Temple at 617-846-1390 or at ttiwinthrop@gmail.com.

     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 ttiwinthrop@gmail.com.

Shabbat Shalom
