Just wondering as to how many of my baptist "friends" have ever attended an Orthodox Jewish worship service? I attended one in our community some time ago. It was an interesting experience. As an aside, I learned that the copy of the Torah which they used in worship was one that was rescued from "Kristallnact" (sp) in Nazi Germany. The tonal music sort of "grated" on my ear drums. But I appreciated that the local Rabbi would pause and explain each part of the worship service. Aside 2: Our local Temple, would certainly not be considered "orthodox" within the orthodox community. My guess is there is as many distinctions within the Jewish worship community as there is within the christian community.
