Alternative Tefillah: Part Two
One of the special tefilla experiences here at our machaneh (camp) is the weekly opportunity to attend an alternative daily minyan on Tzad Bet (B-Side). Our Tzevet (staff) members are invited and encouraged to lead a minyan according to their special expertise, interest and focus. And the chanichim (campers) are free to choose which to attend, affording them a special new way to approach, participate in, and engage with our age-old liturgy. Some examples from this past Friday are featured here. Bonus questions: which one would you attend if you had the privilege of being a chanich? and which Alternative minyan would you lead if you had the privilege of serving on our tzevet?
Making a Minyan: with Rebecca Weiss and Glenn Baevsky; Come experience Shacharit through art! We will do a few different craft projects as we connect with the T’filah. Here the chanichim are shown with their illustrations of various specific Brachot from Birchot Hashachar.
Shhhh-acharit: with Noah Glickman and Matan Rosenfeld; Back by popular demand! Is the excitement of camp a little too much? Come relax, decompress, and reflect with us in our meditation Shacharit.
Yeshivah Kids Shacharit: with Natan Fandel; Come sing, enjoy some Yeshivah Boys choir music, and work on our own T’filah music video!
Storytime Shacharit: (Shoafim Medurah) with Eytan Layman and Gabe
Come join us for an open dialogue about tfilot and how we all connect to them in different ways. We will share stories about our own experiences and learn from each other! For example, individual chanichim told stories that illustrated the prayer “Veahavta” (and thou shalt love).
