Center for Prayer and Spirituality

Prayer, Music, & Spirituality

The Center for Prayer and Spirituality at B’nai Jeshurun is a hub of expansive spiritual practice, devotional music, innovative ritual, and immersive experience, providing the tools for personal and communal transformation.

When courageous innovation is brought to the richness of Jewish tradition, we can affirm the notion of why prayer matters, harness the power of spiritual practice to build community, and realize the possibility of transformation that is true and enduring:

INWARD

Cultivating a deeper sense of awe (yir’ah), lovingkindness (hesed), and gratitude (hoda-ah)

UPWARD

Enabling us to revitalize and nurture intimate relationships with the Divine Presence

OUTWARD

Heightening personal relationships and profound connections within the embrace of a spiritual community

FORWARD

Inspiring and propelling a community of spiritual practice toward making meaningful change in our world
