PRAYING, NOT SIMPLY RECITING THE JEWISH PRAYER SERVICE
with Rabbi Avi Winokur
We will analyze the key Jewish Prayers leading up to the Amidah”(Amidah? What is that rabbi? “ I promise I’ll explain!). We will spend some time on the prayers as literature. What are the themes? How do you know? Why these particular themes? Why this order? Then your next question: “Fine but how am I supposed to pray these ancient texts with my 21st century head/heart/soul?” We’ll give you avenues of access. Hopefully, you will be able to say, “I can actually pray these prayers now.” If time permits, we’ll talk about a daily morning prayer practice.
Classes are on Tuesdays at 7 PM: 10/22, 10/29, 11/5, 11/12
