Each week, the above prisons are visited and the Chaplin or Assistant Chaplain assists in leading a service and/or class in Messianic Judaism. This includes leading the liturgical service, including the opening and closing prayers, the processional of the Torah, and a time of teaching the weekly parsha. They also lead all the religious celebrations throughout the annual Jewish Worship cycle (i.e, Shabbat, Pesach, Shavuot, Yom Teruah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Hanukkah, and Purim).
Through the contributions of the community, Brit Ahm supplies juice and matzah for the weekly Kiddush and HaMotzi. During Pesach, matzot for Passover is also supplied along with elements to have a Passover Seder.
How Can You Help?
Your contributions are deeply appreciated. If you are interested in assisting at one of the facilities, please contact Stan, or call Robin at the Synagogue office M-Thurs 8-5.
VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED!
Currently, we visit four area state prisons to provide Messianic Services and teach Messianic Judaism. There are three other prisons we have entered, but currently, these are not staffed. If you are a member of Brit Ahm and in good standing, please prayerfully consider going along as a trainee and learn to become a Prison Ministry Leader and Assistant Leader. We need five more volunteers now! Please speak to Stan Nichols if you are interested in learning more about this exciting ministry.
