Making Prayer Meaningful

Understanding the biblical references within our liturgy can lead us to a deeper, more connected, more emotional and meaningful prayer experience. Rabbi Elie Kaunfer describes his experimental search for something more in Jewish prayer spaces, a search which led him from literary criticism to the a dark room of Satmar Hasidim singing a niggun. R. Kaunfer brings our attention to all the many important aspects of a prayer experience beyond just the words on the page, offering concrete take-aways for connecting more deeply within Jewish prayer.

Rabbi Elie Kaunfer is president and CEO of the Hadar Institute.
