LOVELAND, CO. — Members of Beth Tefillah Messianic Congregation are thrilled to use their new liturgy presentation this Shabbat. The Microsoft PowerPoint slideshow features a handful of arbitrarily selected portions from the traditional Jewish prayers, enhanced with beautiful and inspiring images of Orthodox Jews praying from real siddurim.
“We feel that these beautiful slides help to create an authentic Jewish space,” noted worship leader Elsie Dee Desplait as she gestured toward the large, illuminated screen in the corner of the room. The images are visible through the large storefront window, as Beth Tefillah meets in a space leased from a local strip mall. “We hope that it attracts the attention of shoppers walking by.”
