With All My Heart

  • Deliberately or spontaneously, robotically or fervently, vocally or men- tally, it is undeniable that humans are hardwired to pray. Perhaps a glad heart soaring on wings of gratitude or a reflexive response to tragedy or personal crisis; longing for a brighter future or solace to a lonely soul; an atheist in a foxhole or a card-carrying worshipper traveling a well- oiled highway of religiosity to the Creator’s throne room; amid joy at a wedding, tears at a funeral, or the ancient blast of a ram’s horn on Rosh Hashanah: for endless reasons, humans pray.

    It is equally indisputable that many find the concept of prayer, particularly formal prayer, distant and mysterious. In our era of high-tech self-absorption, prayer services are often seen as bewildering or daunting. The assumed tool of prayer, the prayer book, is a closed book for the uninitiated, each page inspiring further bafflement. Some find prayer boring, others confusing, and yet others archaic or senseless.

    The Rohr Jewish Learning Institute has set for itself the ambitious goal of tackling these challenges and restoring prayer, one of the Jewish nation’s most precious and potent treasures, to its rightful place: the vibrant hearts and inspired minds of Jews worldwide. With All My Heart seeks to remove the barriers that prevent people from enjoying the gifts of meaningful, genuine, practical, and rewarding communication with their G-d whenever they need it most.

    With All My Heart reaches out to every stratum of our nation and invites them to explore Jewish philosophical analyses and mystical insights that offer fresh and thoughtful perspectives on prayer. This six-part course provides multiple entry points for participants of every knowledge level and affiliation. It accepts the heaviest challenges leveled against the concept and standardization of prayer, and responds with wisdom that causes the art of prayer to become more accessible, personalized, and profound.
