Event Details

This interactive class led by Justin Sundell-Thomas will explore the basics of tefilah, or Jewish prayer, with the goal of providing tools for developing deeper personal and communal prayer practice. Using the siddur as a jumping off point, we will familiarize ourselves with traditional and contemporary elements of daily Jewish prayer, consider ways to create a personally meaningful daily practice, discuss barriers we may face integrating regular tefilah into our lives, and strategize to overcome those barriers.

  • Session 1: Shacharit, the morning service;
  • Session 2: Arvit: the evening service;
  • Session 3: Shabbat, the day of rest and reflection;
  • additional future sessions possible.

Temple Israel Members: $5+ suggested donation per session
