Synagogue Calendar – Lisbon, 2017-2018

  |   Institutional

We are very pleased with the approval of our project by the European Union for Progressive Judaism (EUPJ) which will enable us to host our Shaliach Tzibbur, Dr. Annette Boeckler. Dr. Annette will come to teach, to help celebrate the Feasts and experience Judaism in a full and, above all, dynamic and participative way.

The city of Porto will also benefit from our project where we will have the Youth Movement on Sundays, with the participation of Dr. Annette and Shaliach Tzibbur Íris Ferreira. Iris is a student of rabbinate and native of France, but has its roots in Portugal.

We would like to invite you to be an integral part of our project! Come to our celebrations and activities, help us to establish with full force the liberal Judaism in Portugal! We count on you!
