Here is the “Torah of Broadway” Friday Evening Service

Carol Fox Prescott and I had such a fabulous time sorting through¬†so many wise and deeply meaningful songs that emerged from the musical theater. The vast majority of these songs were written by Jews. Some of the songs we chose had explicitly Jewish themes, but most are simply deeply human. We matched songs up with themes of the Ma’ariv (evening) and Shacharit¬†(morning) service, and created a “Broadway Prayer Book”! The services we led using these handouts were both ecstatic and profound. Folks have asked us to share these documents, and we are happy to do so:
