  Historical Roots of Jewish Prayer - by Bruce Hicken

Have you ever wondered how Jewish prayer came to be, why the prayers in our prayer book are there?  Who wrote these prayers and who decided they should be where they are in our service?  What were they getting at and what did they want us to feel?  Using our Mishkan Tefilah prayer book we will delve into these questions.  The course will meet over six Thursday evenings in March and April.  The course outline is planned to be as follows:

*    Introduction, prayer from the Bible.

*   The Restorative Work of the Rabbis.

*   The Replacement for Sacrifice, the Amidah.

*   Palestine and Persia, Siddur and Machzor, Gaon and Paytan.

*    The Contributions of the Mystics.

*    The Reform Revolution.

Dates: March 12, 19, 26 and April 2, 9, 16.  All Thursday evenings at 7:00.

No background or Hebrew necessary.  Free to Temple Sinai members; all others $60
