A Different Derech (Path) of Prayer with Ed Kass – Thursday, April 30th, 1:00 pm – Our traditional liturgy may not fit our spiritual needs. From the Bal Shem Tov to Naomi Levy –many have written beautiful prayers and poetry that can be used as spiritual access points for what we are experiencing. We also will experience how the kavanot, the intentions, of our traditional prayers have been used to make Jewish prayer more personally relevant. Taught by community member Ed Kass. The goal of this class is to help folks start to build their own personal siddur that speaks to and guides them.
