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.
The Liturgist-in-Residence offers a series of special programs open to the community related to creating liturgy or ritual. The Liturgist-in-Residence presents 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 are open to the entire community and are equivalent to teacher-level service (approximately 8 hours of programming throughout the week).
