“Sephardic and Ashkenazic Liturgy” with Robert AltabetSephardi & Ashkenazi Chief Rabbis
Comparisons of similarities and differences in prayer.

Sephardi & Ashkenazi Chief Rabbis

The core of Jewish liturgy traces back to the early rabbinic period and the siddur of Saadia Gaon, and is universally followed in traditional communities worldwide. However, Sephardim and Ashkenazim developed nuances in prayer liturgies. We’ll look at the differences to see how rabbinic interpretations, cultures and history shaped the religious experiences underlying prayer.
Presented In-Person. RSVP: administrador@sephardifederationpbc.org
