הצגה   Learning about the Jewish Moravian Community

Liverpool Reform Synagogue looks after MST # 67 from Prerov in Moravia , Czech Republic. The Torah was  completed in 1822. This event will look not only at what was lost of the Prerov community during the Shoah, but the beauty of the Jewish Community in Prerov in 1822.

Creating a ceremony Zichrona l’vracha

We will look at some of the musical scores for the melodies used in Moravian synagogues during this time as well as music, poems, psalms and liturgies that were meaningful to members of the Prerov Community.

Together we will create a short public ceremony to remember the Moravian Jewish Community which will include songs and prayers from the Jewish liturgy in the 1800’s, Psalms in English, Hebrew and Czech, Poems in English and Czech and songs in Hebrew and Czech.

Each session will include a short presentation about the history of Jewish practice in Prerov and Olomouc from the 16th Century onwards, followed by a discussion.  Please bring a poem, song, or prayer that is meaningful to you to share with others.
