Over the High Holy-Days and Succot, I attended services at many synagogues and locations, including Masorti, North London; Heathrow Terminal 5 with various charedim; Yemeni, Ashkenazi and Sephardi all in Re’ut; davened at the Kotel; two modern Orthodox congregations in Talpiot; and Reform, Liberal, United, Federation and Chabad back in the UK.
And do you know what? They all had different customs and different prayer books, but they were all full of Jews who all read from the same Torah and prayed to the same God.
Given the divisions we are always being told about, who’d have thought it? Marc Michaels Exeter Gardens, Ilford, Essex
