Congregants who are Kohanim and Leviim

Congregants who are Kohanim and Leviim

At most Torah Services, Bet Torah follows a tradition of assigning the first Aliyah to a Kohen, & the second to a Levi. When not assigned in advance (e.g., by a Bnai Mitzvah family, or by request), the ushers will make the assignment during the service. The ushers would love to know which congregants are Kohanim and Leviim, so the Ritual Committee is compiling a comprehensive list. Please let us know who you are, either by calling the Bet Torah office or emailing [email protected] or by letting the ushers know early in the service. No experience is necessary, as the Torah blessings are available in Hebrew & transliteration, in large type, right next to the Torah. Questions? contact Peter Linden, Ritual Committee chair @ [email protected]
