Shabbat Services Revamped

Contributed by Rachel Berger on 02/25/2010 

Students asked and Hillel delivers - not one, but two Shabbat services! This week, in reponse to your requests we will have both Reform and Conservative services. The Reform service will be led by our own Cantor Abbe Lyons using the new Reform prayerbook, Mishkan T'filah.  The Conservative service will be student led. We will all join together at the end for wine and challah.  If you have been waiting to see a Reform service happen, this week's Shabbat is for you! Services will begin at 6pm in Muller Chapel this Friday Feb. 26th.  See you there!

Another chance to enter!
