Learner’s Services: Prayer for the People

“Prayer for the People” 5776

Everyone’s welcome to join.


“Prayer for the People” is a practical hands-on learning community within Town and Village’s spiritual home. This minyan will daven (pray) an abbreviated version of the entire service each week, adding additional lines to each of the prayers week after week. In this way the participants will do serious consistent learning and daven. Members will develop confidence in the recitation of each prayer’s ancient words and melodies. We will learn to focus our sacred concentration (kavanah) towards the timeless themes that these prayers evoke, and explore what we, as dynamic individuals, can reveal for ourselves and for others in these prayers.

“Prayer for the People” is a true hevre, a community, of spiritual seekers who learn from one another. Accordingly there will be optional “Prayer for the People” Shabbat dinners and lunches scheduled throughout the year to enjoy each other’s’ company and strengthen our bonds.

“Prayer for the People” will be held on the following dates from 10:30-11:30am. We will then go upstairs to the sanctuary for Rabbi Sebert’s drash and the Musaf service.

Come pray and learn with us this year!
