Praying as a Human, Praying as a Jew

Hosted By: The Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning

The Jewish people have used prayer throughout the annals of time, turning toward God for gratitude and petitions. These prayers of deep introspection embody hopes, desires, and yearnings for oneself, one’s community and for humanity as a whole. Delve into Jewish prayer in this riveting class with beloved faculty member, Rabbi Dr. Amy Wallk, a member of the editorial committee for Siddur Lev Shalem, and explore the tension between praying for oneself and praying for the universal.
