Book: My Prayer

Time: Thursdays @ 6:30 pm Beginning August 20th.

For the strength to face the challenges of life, Moshe instituted the Shema. For thousands of years, the Jewish people have focused their senses with the basic truths and faith of Judaism with daily prayer.

Understand the structure of prayer as we uncover these hidden gems, the tenets of Judaism. Every week we will review and discuss another part of prayer.

All participants will be notified a week in advance of which sections we will discuss and are encouraged to read that section of the book (well).

Where to buy the book:

It can be bought from virtually every Judaica store or from Amazon ($53)

Also available in these formats:

I would suggest having a physical book, but if you prefer digital, you can get it here:

Book description:

As for me MY PRAYER: A commentary on the daily, Shabbat & Festival Prayers. Authored by the late Rabbi Dr. Nissan Mindel, noted scholar and prolific author, and first published in 1972, it quickly became a standard text on the Siddur.

In arranging the structure of our daily prayers, the Sages selected Biblical and Talmudic passages that would evoke and articulate one`s deepest religious feelings, to convey the sublime outpouring of the heart and inspire the cleaving of the soul to G-d. At the same time, they include texts that express the basic truths and tenets of Judaism, from elementary moral and ethical values to the highest concept of Monotheism as proclaimed in the Shema.
