Members of Kehillat Shira Hadasha have been celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Jerusalem congregation.

On a recent Shabbat, one of the members, a lifelong observant Jew and Jewish scholar, spoke of the renewal of his ability to pray with conviction because of his participation in the congregation. The speaker did not specify the particular features that drew him to pray there – not the spiritual singing, for instance, nor the greater participation of women, nor the welcoming of strangers. He spoke of the experience as a totality that was transformative for him.
