Course Info

In this course, you, along with your instructor Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg, will journey through 19 blessings of the core Jewish prayer commonly called the Amidah. With characteristic passion and attention to detail, your instructor will lead the class into a deeper devotional experience highlighting many points of contact between the Amidah, Lord's Prayer and the teachings of the Apostles. Each section of this ancient Jewish prayer will be re-translated directly from Hebrew, so those members of our learning community who either had some Hebrew or have at least memorized the alphabet will be able to double the blessing received as the result of taking this mini-course. No prior knowledge of Hebrew, however, is necessary to take this fascinating study that will both inform and transform your prayer life.
