Rediscovering the Amidah: New Insights Into Judaism's Most Essential Prayer with Rabbi Elie Kaunfer
If any prayer is core to the Jewish tradition, it is the Amidah. Recited in every prayer service, the ostensibly straightforward Amidah is a collage of images, intentions, allusions, and intertexts. Yet, whether we pray it regularly or rarely, much of Amidah's language and themes remain closed to us. In this series we will explore the beauty and complexity of this important prayer and ask: How can I interpret the siddur in a grounded and traditional yet creative manner? Are traditional prayer formulas able to express my own values/ideas of prayer? What do you do when you "disagree" with the prayer's content?
