Special "no shush" service at Har HaShem

Special

HAR HaShem will hold a Shabbat service that will be run a little looser than typical services, with participants able to move about and make noise and the only rule will be: “No Shushing.”

The Nov. 15 service, believed to be the first of its kind at a Boulder-area synagogue, will feature spread out chairs, lower lights, time to touch the Torah, simple prayers and singing and will be especially geared toward those families with a family member who has a disability or special needs.

The 6 p.m. service will be 45 minutes instead of the usual 75-minutes, and will be followed by a dessert oneg, where parents can meet and network with other parents and therapists who may be at the service.
