The Only Thing I Know About You Is That I Love You

Anim Zemirot

Rabbi Jason Rubenstein

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:

Dena Weiss explores the history and structure of Anim Zemirot and its connection to Shir HaYihud.
Jason Rubenstein considers the limits of imagination and the strength of longing as a foundation for loving God.
Joey Weisenberg discusses his approach for melding the meaning of Anim Zemirot with music.
