Kedushah
Tefillah Toolkit Issue 7

Elie Kaunfer, Dena Weiss, Joey Weisenberg

Mechon Hadar's Tefillah Toolkit takes a prayer or a section of a service from Jewish liturgy and explores it from three perspectives: content, meaning, and music. Together as a package, we explore what the prayer is about, what it means to pray it, and how to get a community praying it together.

In this issue:

  • Elie Kaunfer considers the structure and history of the Kedushah, and Mimkomkha in particular, a central component of communal prayer.
  • Dena Weiss explores the choreography of the Kedushah, reconsidering our relationship to angels.
  • Joey Weisenberg discusses his approach for melding the meaning of the Kedushah with music.
