Welcome to EAJL
There's so much going on at EAJL and we don't want you to miss a thing - here's some dates for your diary...
EAJL in Oxford - 27th October 2013 - THIS SUNDAY!
An afternoon interactive learning experience for people who need to find out more about being in shul. It is a taster of the art of possibility.
It is for lay people who feel uncomfortable because they don’t know what’s going on. It is also for leaders of prayer, whatever level of experience they might have – and potential leaders of prayer! Our services are our window to the community and our link with our people. They should be stimulating, spiritual, educational, warm, soulful, uplifting, soothing and sometimes exciting. They should always be meaningful and never be boring!
