Overview for Friday Night Service Leader (English)-
You will be seated on the bima (pulpit) for the entire service. When we get to the top of page 11, the Cantor will introduce you and invite you to walk up to the lectern.
The applicable pages of the prayer book can be found here . Please take the time to read through the entire service and all of the handwritten notes so that you will be prepared to lead the service. If a note is in quotation marks, that means it is to be read aloud to the congregation (so “Please be seated” should be said to congregation but Please be seated is meant for you only!)
Note that there are 4 places where you will need to choose which reading you’d like to do:
Page 14 (bottom) OR Page 15
Page 29 either the top OR the bottom
Page 32 (middle) OR page 33
Page 34 (middle) OR page 35 (top)
You will sit down on the bima for the silent prayer and the Cantor will lead the rest of the service.
