How does it feel to represent the community in front of God? What are the real risks and the most beautiful of being a “Messenger of the Community”? How we may combine the traditional texts and melodies to personalize them into a powerful plea or praise? We may share our thoughts and considerations as community members, how do we see the role of the Cantor/Chazzan/Sheliach Tzibbur? How we may rely on them when it comes to speaking on our behalf to the Almighty?
