Eis in Jewish Action: Are We Praying to the Wrong God?

Herzl Institute Educational Director R. Rafi Eis has published a moving essay on the problem of teaching young Jews about God in the Fall 2017 issue of Jewish Action. In “Praying to the Wrong God? An Old-New Approach to Tefillah Education,” Eis argues that medieval concepts may be holding religious youth back from approach God. This essay is a response to the Herzl Institute’s workshop on “Teaching Tanach as a Source of Theology and Philosophy,” which took place on August 1-4, 2016, and which Eis organized as convener. The workshop was conducted with the support of the John Templeton Foundation. Read R. Eis’ essay in Jewish Actiohere.
