Volunteer Service Leaders

Baalei t’filah means "leaders of prayer." At Beth El, our community and our rabbis are partners in shaping and in leading our worship services. We are always seeking members who are interested in leading or co-leading, either on Shabbat evenings or mornings.

You don’t need to have experience, vocal training, or fluency in Hebrew—just a desire to lead our community in spirited prayer and music. A full range of study and preparation materials is available, and Rabbi Zellman works with you as needed so you feel comfortable as you learn and lead.

Baalei t’filah materials are available on the Music Resources page.

Preparation Materials: Copies of the siddur (prayer book), readings about the structure of Jewish liturgy, blank service templates, and recordings of many musical options are available from Rabbi Zellman.
