Beginners’s Prayer and Torah Class


Why do we stand for kiddush on Friday night and sit for kiddush on Saturday? Why do some people stand for part of kiddush and sit for another part? Why do we make kiddush?


Why do we take three steps back followed by three steps forward when we begin our Shemoneh Esrei prayer? Why do we stand for Shemoneh Esrei? Why does the Shemoneh Esrei have nineteen blessings when “shemoneh esrei” means eighteen? Why does someone repeat the entire Shemoneh Esrei out loud? Why don’t we repeat it during the Maariv service?


What is S’hma? Why do we say it? Why does it have to be said within certain time frames? What if I miss it? Why are women not required to say S’hma? Why are women not required to pray?

Why are there three services on each day of the week? Why is there a fourth service on Shabbat? Why do we read from the Torah only on certain days? What days are they?

These are the types of questions that are addressed in the Beginners’ Prayer Class. There are hundreds of questions; each of great importance and each with a proper answer. This class addresses and discusses the different issues in Jewish prayer.


The Beginners’ Prayer Class is taught by Rabbi Danny Frankel on Sunday mornings at 10:00 AM. It is open to both men and women.
