This course will analyze the philosophies of prayer articulated by seminal Jewish thinkers including Maimonides; Martin Buber; Yeshayahu Leibowitz; Joseph Soloveitchik; Rebbe Nachman; Abraham Joshua Heschel; and Tamar Ross. We will explore the theology of prayer — can we influence God? Does God respond to prayer? — as well as examine questions about public vs. private prayer; gendered prayer language, and whether prayer can inspire spirituality. Ultimately, we will try to understand the role of prayer in the overall picture of Jewish meaning.
