According to a 2014 Pew Research Center survey, more than half of Americans say they pray every day. This course aims to make prayer more personally meaningful by addressing some of the philosophical, emotional, and practical barriers that make it difficult to pray. By examining the history of how the Jewish prayers developed, as well as the meaning of the most notable prayers, participants will become more comfortable with tapping into Jewish prayer as a means of connection to their heritage.
Admission: $100; couples $180 (includes textbook).
