Gabbai: A Torah Guide on the Bimah

Sunday, May 22, 2022 21 Iyyar 5782

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

This summer, we begin a series of classes on how to lead different aspects of our Shabbat services. Our Gabbai class does require proficiency in Hebrew reading. Every Shabbat, we invite two Gabbaim to the bimah to help the Torah reader with their task. Both Gabbaim prompt the Torah reader if they lose their place or say a word incorrectly. Both Gabbaim also assist those who come up for aliyot with blessings and choreography. Most actively, Gabbai Rishon (the First Gabbai) calls each honoree to the bimah, according to a simple Hebrew formula. In this class, we'll learn both about the liturgy behind calling honorees and some tips for assisting with Torah reading.
