The How and Why of Jewish Prayer

Hosted By: Ikar

Jewish prayer is a paradox. It is at once the central practice of the Jewish people, and one of the most inaccessible. It is at once an intimate, personal conversation with God and a formal, ritualistic reenactment of ancient Temple rites. In this class, Ikar will study prayer in both theory and practice – learning the core components of the Siddur and how they are performed as well as the theology that underlies the Jewish prayer experience – and attempt to resolve some of its inner tensions.
