The Avoda, the poetic historical record of the Kohen Gadol’s Yom Kippur service which is woven into the Yom Kippur Mussaf prayers, has a difficult language and requires some background to fully appreciate. Join Rabbi Yehoshua Geller for this special presentation about the the Temple service as he hopes to provide a clear understanding of what went on in the Temple on Yom Kippur and how it directly relates to our prayers today.

He served as the Rosh Beit Medrash of the English Speakers' Program at the Jerusalem College of Technology/Machon Lev, Rabbi Geller has also taught at Yeshivat Yam HaTalmud and Yeshivat Hamivtar.
