Pray It Forward: God, Gratitude and Gathering Together
with Rabbi Benjy Bar-Lev
Wednesdays, 6:15- 7:45pm | March 6 - April 17 (no class 3/27)

EDUCATION: Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning

Lesson 4 - Intention, Connection, and Introspection
Lesson 5 - Praying the Part: Special Prayers for Ordinary Days
Lesson 6 - Shal-Ohm: Mysticism, Meditation and Meaning

Prayer provides a means to express gratitude. Prayer can be silent. Prayer can be communal. Prayer expresses our deepest needs and appreciation.
This course follows the development of prayer, from the Tabernacle in the wilderness of Sinai, to the Temple in Jerusalem, to the Synagogue of today. The course will also explore some of the concepts behind prayer and blessings, as well as the power of meditation, as we link our past, present, and future, to the immediate and the transcendent. This is a journey of the soul — start today.
