Our Beth Jacob community yearns to learn about tefillah in order to deepen our own understanding and experience of Jewish prayer.
People in the Beth Jacob community explore a prayer or psalm from our Shabbat morning liturgy, using sources in our library and online. They chose a meaningful translation and commentary and, with the Tefillah Team, prepare and publish notes.
Tefillah Notes are organized by their location in the Shabbat morning service.
