Overview

The Jewish prayer book is a collage of texts that reflect our deepest emotions, longings, and experiences, but its meaning can take some work to unlock. With a focus on the Amidah for Shabbat, we will interpret the texts of our prayers, uncovering new insights and learning a method of understanding the prayer book in a new way.
