Ilanot Tefilla: Karaoke and Torah!
Another in our innovative series of Karaoke Tefillot took place this morning at Ilanot Tefilla. This user-friendly, participatory use of technology succeeded in motivating all the chanichim (campers) and tzevet (staff) to join in a rousing, spirited Psukei D’Zimra. Josh Edelglass was the Shaliach Tzibur (prayer leader) and did a great job of explaining various parts of the service, as well as how the kehilla (congregation) should respond in the correct spots. One of the unique aspects of karaoke tefilla is that the kehilla follows along on the large screen (rather than each person in their individual siddur). This first part of the morning service is our wake up call for the day, and was very effective! It was followed by Shacharit and the Torah service. Yasher Koach!
