Reconstructionist Liturgical Modifications

We present, below some liturgical modifications created by B'nai Havurah member Ed Towbin.    By posting some of prayers and rationale behind them, members and guests will have the opportunity to preview the texts for familiarity and content. The prayers are intended to fit comfortably with the traditional texts, and people may decide beforehand whether they want to use the modified or the traditional as found in our prayerbook, Kol HaNeshamah.
