Shlichei Tzibur Training Program Application

October 2023 Application for the January-June 2024 Cohort

Thank you for your interest in this program.

This six-month experience is designed to empower individuals to lead worship services, shiva minyans, and singing circles within their own communities. Through twice monthly classes and coaching sessions with Cantor Sheila Nesis, participants will build the skills they need to succeed as prayer leaders. For more information, please visit the Shlichei Tzibur website here. 

Before filling out the application, please take a moment to consider the following requirements:

Applicants are active participants in their home communities and are committed to bringing the knowledge and skills they will develop to serve their home communities.

  • The program is for individuals ages 21+.
  • Basic Hebrew is required (sound out simple words or short phrases, follow along the Hebrew in the prayer book).
  • Consistent attendance is required. Students must commit to attending at least 80 percent of classes. There are a limited number of spots available per cohort, and we appreciate that you only apply if you can make this commitment. Please check the schedule here.

The cost of this program is $360. We will ask for payment once you have been accepted and commit. Cost should not be a barrier to participation. If you belong to a synagogue, you may approach your rabbi or other leadership about supporting your participation in this program. If cost remains a challenge, please email [email protected] and we will work with you. 

Almost done. Where should we send the confirmation?
