Alternative T’filot: Take Three!
Tzad Bet chanichim (Side-B campers) were treated to another set of Alternative T’filot this past Friday morning. The chanichim chose which one to attend, and could thus experience a somewhat different t’fila than the usual daily Palmer service. These creative new pathways to prayer were personally engaging and spiritually invigorating. In addition to some of the t’filot that were offered and blogged about last week and the week before (see here: http://www.campramahne.org/blog/dizzying-array-minyanim-keeps-real-alternative-minyanim-friday/ and here: http://www.campramahne.org/blog/alternative-tfilot-part-2-tzad-bet/ ), some of the new offerings were:
Radical Amazement T’filot with Josh Kulp – Explore passages from the works of Abraham Joshua Heschel, who believed that t’filot are our attempt to note what an amazing world we live in.
