We believe that the best way to learn something is to experience it on a regular basis. Because of this, we include weekly t’filah (prayer) experiences, led by a T'filah leader, occasionally joined by a member of our clergy team.
5th Graders join Mayim T'filah
6th Graders have their own T'filah Experience
Our goals for t’filah are:
To develop the children’s capacity for a meaningful prayer experience, including an understanding of the meanings of our prayers
To practice singing, chanting, or reciting our t’filot (prayers) on a regular basis – a reflection of our tradition’s invitation to engage this practice regularly
To learn melodies, styles, and “prayer choreography” regularly used at TBS
To provide older children with opportunities to lead prayer.
30 minutes of every session are spent in t’filah. Music and singing are infused throughout the experience.
