Call for Proposals: Liturgist-in-Residence 2019

The National Havurah Committee is seeking applicants who wish to be considered for the position of Liturgist-in-Residence (LIR) at the 2019 Summer Institute!


The Liturgist-in-Residence will offer a series of special programs open to the community related to creating liturgy or ritual. The Liturgist-in-Residence will present at least three independent workshops, and also may lead or participate in innovative prayer experiences, an evening or Shabbat program, an activity specifically for kids or teens, or community programs. These programs will be open to the entire community and will be equivalent to teacher-level service (approximately 8 hours of programming throughout the week).

We especially welcome applications that share your process of creating or reinterpreting liturgy 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 are appropriate, that should not be the sole focus of the Liturgist-in-Residence workshops and activities. The Liturgist-in-Residence receives one complimentary registration to attend at the NHC Summer Institute. If multiple individuals are on the same application and are chosen, they will share the tuition credit. There is no stipend with this position.

Completed applications are due by Monday, February 4. We will notify you regarding the status of your application by Monday, February 18.

Please contact to discuss your proposals before submitting, if you have questions.

The Liturgist-in-Residence position is sponsored by a donation from the editors of L’chu N’ran’nah: An Egalitarian Traditional Bencher with an Alternative Edge with gratitude to the NHC Community.
