Singing. Beseeching. Davening. Swaying back and forth. Asking for a favor. Please, God–let me get an “A” on this test….Just about anything can be considered praying, from a sublime meditative conversation with God to thinking, “Wow, this food tastes good.” So what do we mean when we talk about praying? How do we fit it into our lives? Director Judy Prays has looked at How Jews Eat and How Jews Look. Now, she checks out what we talk (and think) about when we pray, what it means when we do–and whether anyone’s on the receiving end.
