Applications are open for the Liturgist in Residence at the 2023 Summer Institute.We especially welcome applications that share your process of creating new prayers, reinterpreting prayers, or designing new rituals through example. Please offer at least one session on “how you do what you do” so that others may learn from you. We are not looking for programs that teach traditional liturgical skills, nusach or service leading methods. While teaching, learning, singing, or matching original, or alternative melodies for prayers is appropriate, that should not be the sole focus of the Liturgist-in-Residence workshops and activities.
We encourage Jews of Color and marginalized communities whose original liturgy reflects their challenges, dreams, interpretations, and variations of Jewish prayers to apply. The Liturgist-in-Residence will be a be a catalyst to create and share contemporary prayer experiences and/or rituals that embrace, reflect, and celebrate the NHC community’s racial, religious, and social diversity.
