Israeli S'lichot: New Religious Initiatives in Israel
with Rani Jaeger of Beit Tefilah Yisrael
What happens when a group of people who won't step foot in a shul are transformed in a public space by a musical, spiritual experience? In Israel, new religious initiatives are happening outside of any movement, providing another way for people to connect to Judaism through music and poetry. Join us as Beit Tefilah Yisrael's Rani Jaeger, through Skype, leads and teaches the music that brings people together, and learn how GJC's own S'lichot service connects us to Israel.
Rani Jaeger is a faculty member and research fellow at the Shalom Hartman Institute. He is pursuing his doctorate at Bar-Ilan University in the interdisciplinary program of Culture and Hermeneutics. Rani teaches at Tel Aviv University and is one of the founders of Beit Tefilah Israeli, a secular synagogue in the heart of Tel Aviv.
