Iyyun Tefillah: Learning Jewish Prayer
at The Emanuel Synagogue
Next Session: Saturday, 12/3, 9:15 am
Join our student rabbi, Sass, to improve your understanding of tefillah, Jewish prayer, and your ability to follow along in the siddur, the prayerbook. Throughout the year, we will learn specific prayers and their origins. We will also ask, “what makes prayer Jewish, and how can we develop a prayer practice that is rooted in Jewish tradition?” Sessions will end in time to join Torah service around 10:00.
On December 3, we will discuss the Amidah, the standing prayer at the center of each of our services. We will study various Mishnah regarding spontaneous and personal prayer and look at the way the Amidah changes during the week and holidays.
Future sessions are planned for 1/21, 2/4, 3/4, 4/1, and 5/6. Come to one, some, or all!
