Trialling a new Prayer Book at KLS

We are introducing the new LJ draft siddur once a month in our Shabbat morning worship.  A team of rabbis, including our own Rabbi René, have worked to design this new siddur. The draft is meant to be used for a year to see how our community responds.

Our current siddur was published in the middle of the 1990s, combining traditional elements and new ones. Judaism has always been Progressive, and the process is never ending.  Taking part in the creation of a new form of prayer book is an exciting experience, and our new siddur should reflect our understanding of Progressive Judaism today, the ongoing conversation with our age-old tradition and the challenges of modern times.
