Pre-minyan learning session from 9 - 9:30 AM with Rabbi Creditor: Rambam's Hilchot Tefillah/Laws of Prayer. Rambam (Maimonides) wrote "Laws of Jewish Prayer", a volume of his comprehensive Mishnah Torah so communities could study Jewish tradition together. This preparation for the Minyan, will be based on the original text in the Hebrew with English translation.
Minyan at 9:30 followed by breakfast thanks to Barbara Wezelman and at 10:30 AM we will move to the Sanctuary (because people will be preparing the Social Hall for the Pre-Chanukah Fair) and
Rabbi Menachem Creditor will discuss "Jewish Leadership & Responsibility". This is the second talk in the five-part series "Exploring the Concept of a Jewish Community". Jewish leaders, professional and volunteer, care very deeply about their communities. But how many of us have experienced a Jewish Leadership training program? Based on one such program he created and led in Boston ("J-Lead"), Rabbi Creditor will present a basic overview of Jewish Leadership Core Competencies, as well as suggest reading material for further developing leadership skills.
