Everyone Counts: a Learning programme for the omer

Each of our minyanim are participatory. Each week it takes many volunteers energy and talent to make each of our beautiful services happen.

During the fifty days between Pesach and Shavuot we count the Omer, this Omer, we invite you to find a new way to participate in our community, to learn a new skill to contribute to our Shabbat morning services.

For some of us that is taking our first steps towards the bimah, with an aliyah. For others it’s learning to lead parts of the service, or brushing up our bnei mitzvah learning and reading from the Torah.
