Conservative Tefillah

Tefillah >> Conservative Tefillah

In Conservative Judaism it is important to create a spiritual Jewish prayer space. “[T]here are four things we can do to enhance the intensity and health of our spiritual communities: First, be willing to join an intense and new experience, and accept the personal vulnerability that comes with encountering newness. Second, use your whole self to pray – when your body remembers the experience you’ve crossed the line from prayer to davening. Hold tight to a general trajectory without concretizing any one moment in its course as your final destination. Third, find a community with a dependable center that seeks to empower. Safe space for sacred experiencing need not be hierarchical. Finally, love your fellow davener. Reach out to the people who make up your hevreh. Acknowledge them as capable of making valuable contributions without requiring them to be exactly like you.”
