Is prayer the act of speaking to the Divine?  How does an Atheist pray?  Does a person need 
to have a concept of God in order to be a "good prayer-er?"  Does a person need to be 
Jewish to pray Jewishly?  What do we pray for?  What words "must" we use?  Is public prayer 
"better" than private prayer?  Join this conversation about traditional and contemporary 
languages that have informed the world of T'filah/Jewish Prayer.  No Hebrew is required for 
this class.
