Although the typical synagogue has a professional prayer leader, or ba'al t'filah, leading services at Or Zarua is done by its congregants.
Some of the prayer leaders learned to lead davening when they were in Jewish day schools or when preparing, in their youth, to become b'nei mitzvah. Others, having seen their fellow congregants lead, have learned as adults to lead davening. We're always seeking new leaders and you, too, are invited to join those who already fulfill this essential role in the life of our congregation.
