Rabbi Alicia Magal is doing things the Sedona way

 "It is extremely varied," Magal says. "We have everything from very cultural, secular Jews, to Conservative and even Orthodox Jews."  This leads to her to try to have a service that's as open and welcoming as possible, using whatever means necessary. "I have to weave together all these strands and I try to do that at every service, explaining and translating anything in Hebrew, not assuming they know what it is, and [offer] my own take on meanings. They're not just..." She pauses. "We don't just recite prayers, we kind of go inside them," she explains.                                                            
It means that what she does is whatever she can do to get the point across -- to really address what a prayer means, not just the superficial content that you might get from a basic translation. "I use story, I use dance, I use art," Magal says. "It's a very holistic way of presenting a heritage rather than just rules or laws or history."  It means that going to one of her services will likely be a different experience than could be found at other synagogues.
