Communities Who Pray Together


Thank you for joining us in “Communities Who Pray Together,” the sixth and final lesson of With All My Heart.

In this lesson, we visited the social cultures of the Jews of Alexandria in Egypt and probed the mystical perspectives of the kabbalists of sixteenth-century Safed, Israel.

We learned about praying with teammates, and about including every member of the community in our services in order for our collective prayers to be most efficient, like members of the community working together to make the neighborhood more safe, not only securing their own individual homes.

We mapped the paths of the heights that our communal prayers reach, and met the soul and secret of their powerful effects—Jewish unity, which is what makes our Father in Heaven really kvell with nachas from our beautiful family.

Thank you for going on this six-week journey with me and the rest of our students in discovering the beauty of this central theme in Judaism, and our faith in its supernatural potential.

I hope you’ll enjoy engaging in your next opportunity for communal prayer as much as we all enjoyed discussing it together! The next one coming up is this Shabbat at 9:00am

Looking forward to praying with you soon,

Rabbi Yitzchok Kahan
