The Making Prayer Real Curriculum offers an innovative, “spiritual dynamics” approach to learning prayer and liturgy. Over 50 outstanding teachers are brought into the classroom via video, beginning a conversation that challenges students and draws them into dialogue with prayer, the Siddur, and each other. Skills are emphasized over theology as a workshop atmosphere is cultivated. As students explore traditional and alternative prayer practices they discover and develop their abilities, crafting their own relationship to Jewish prayer as individuals and as members of the community.
A Resource-Rich Curriculum
The curriculum includes:
The curriculum includes over 40, five-minute Conversations videos useful in many venues beyond a class on prayer, such as adult education classes, Confirmation classes, community retreats, Havurah gatherings, parent meetings, divrei Torah for committee and Board meetings, etc. These videos also answer the need for compelling, accessible Jewish content for clergy-less gatherings.
