Praying for the Monsoon: An Arizona Liturgical Adventure

Hosted By: Valley Beit Midrash

Watch the recording of this event here:

The summer months typically supply a significant portion of Arizona’s annual rainfall, but in recent years have been bone dry. As Monsoon season arrives, it’s tempting to pray for rain. But can we do so as Jews? And if we did, what would it look like? Join Dr. Daniel Stein Kokin as he presents his “Tefillat ha-Monsoon,” and explores the halakhic, literary, and identity issues raised by this new prayer.
