The Pardes Center for Jewish Educators is proud to produce this podcast series to support and inspire tefilah education. Rabbi Zvi Hirschfield, Pardes faculty member, leads a panel of veteran educators in an invigorating discussion of how to make prayer relevant to young people. Using a menu of tefilah goals, created as part of the Pardes Tefilah Education Initiative, each educator explores each episode’s prayer through a lens of either Connecting to God, Developing a Sense of Jewish Community, or Cultivating Personal Growth.

In our third episode, Zvi Hirschfield is joined by PCJE Faculty members Sefi Kraut and Reuven Margrett as they delve into the first three brachot of the Amidah. They explore the key themes of those brachot: tribal affiliation, reviving the dead, and holiness, through the perspectives of different tefilah goals – connecting to the community, God, and personal development – in order to conjure up more meaningful and engaging tefilah experiences for young people.
In this episode: Rabbi Zvi Hirschfield, Aviva Lauer Golbert and Rabbi Reuven Margrett.
