A Dynamic Study of Shabbat Tefillot
LSJS Jan – Mar 2013
From the LSJS website:
How do we talk to the God of Creation on the Day of Rest?
This course looks at seven sections of the siddur that we encounter every Shabbat: Who wrote them? Why were they included in the siddur? Do we appreciate and embrace the ideas they contain? Have their meanings changed over time? Are they still relevant?
“The Shabbat is given unto you, not you unto the Shabbat” (Mechilta 31:13).
This course will enable you to get more out of your siddur prayer and develop your appreciation of God’s great gift to us, the Shabbat.
