Pathways of Prayer

Taught by SAJ's Kleinbaum Rabbinic Intern, David Eber
 

Connecting with and seeking meaning from ancient Jewish prayer can be difficult and unfamiliar territory for many of us. After the High Holidays, David will teach a new way to explore the prayerbook and its meaning to engage learners in multiple modalities. We will learn the mechanics of the service,

the intentions of specific prayers and will pray together. Participants will have the opportunity to forge their own path with Jewish prayer and meaning.Familiarity with Hebrew is not necessary.

Saturday mornings, 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Every other Saturday, beginning November 4.
