For Jews, there are three prayer times: morning, afternoon and evening. Most prayer groups combine the afternoon and evening prayers into one.
During the weekday when it is not a holiday, Jews have a practice of putting on leather amulets called tefillin. Tallit, the prayer shawl, is worn during the morning services on weekdays and Shabbat/holidays.
The focus of your b’nai mitzvah learning is on the Shabbat service. But we are including these videos so you can be familiar with the elements of weekday prayers. We’ve even included a video on how to say the most important prayer in Judaism, shema (which means “listen”) in sign language!
No homework for this unit.
