Jewish Prayer: A day-long intensive

Sunday, 3 September, 2023 17 Elul 5783

8:30 AM - 5:00 PMKent House

 Join us in preparation for high holidays for a full day of study and learning on the theme of Tefillah, prayer on Sunday 3rd September. The sessions will include practical approaches to prayer, philosophical ideas around prayer, and an understanding of what prayer looks like here at WS. We will be learning about developing our own personal prayer practices, the power of prayer, and how we move back and forth from Torah (study) to Tefillah (prayer) in our community. This day will help us prepare for our high holidays services and touch on themes for this time of year.

Here's the schedule for the day (please note this is subject to change):
