Rabbi Shmuel Kaplan, Head Shliach of Maryland and creator of the Siddur with Chassidic Commentary, leads a weekly class on prayer.
We spend much time each day reciting the words of the siddur. Join us to enhance your prayers and become more proficient in understanding and mastering the siddur. This comprehensive series on Tefillah explores the special meaning embedded in the text of our prayers—elucidating, step by step, the words, structure, and progression of davening.
The very beginning of the formal prayer service starts with ‘Hodu’, a prayer of song and praise. Rabbi Kaplan presents a general outline of the structure and sections of Tefillah, which provides insight into why we begin specifically with Hodu.
