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.
