What is the foundational scripture that commands Jews to pray? You may be very surprised! How often do Jews pray each day, and where did this idea come from in scripture? What do the prayer books look like, and why are there two of them? Enjoy part 1 of this introduction, as you take your very first first step in understanding Jewish Prayer!
Application. Hi there! Bob O-Dell, the Christian co-founder of Root Source. I volunteer my time for Root Source because I believe that we as Christians have a tremendous amount we can learn from these Jewish teachers and Rabbis. And for sure, one of the best parts of this job is getting to hear these lessons before they get posted, and to think how they apply to me as a typical Christian. I shared some of these applications with one of our Christian focus group members and she said “Why don’t you write these things down?” I told Gidon and he said “go for it”. So I’ll try to add a few of my personal notes after some of the various lessons. Hopefully a few of them might seed some thoughts for you, and I hope you will add your own ideas to mine to make them better still! Spoiler Alert — You might want to stop reading NOW and come back to this AFTER you watch the lesson.
