Philosophy

Kehilat Hadar believes that t'fillah b'tzibbur (public prayer) can and should be inspiring and uplifting.  Each Shabbat, we entrust service leading responsibilities to several participants. Our lay leaders put tremendous thought into choosing melodies that people can sing along with and that may be new or different than the standard ones that are frequently used.  Communal singing is often the highlight of our services.

Kehilat Hadar’s leadership works hard to schedule davening and leyning well in advance of services to allow leaders ample time to prepare.  We are always looking for experienced daveners and leyners, as well as those who would like to become more experienced.  We offer occasional classes and are happy to pair you with a coach who can help you learn how to lead a part of services or brush up on your skills. Also, check out our davening audio files.

Please contact us if you would like to lead any of the following Shabbat services:

        * Kabbalat Shabbat, Maariv, Shacharit, Musaf, Minchah

        * Torah, Haftarah

        * D'var Torah (5 minutes)
