Davening With Fire 003 Wild Within The Rules

Rock Bottom


The rules of prayer cover hundreds of chapters in the Shulchan Aruch, the most embraced code of Jewish law. It seems strange though that prayer should be so highly regulated and regimented. After all, prayer is all about heart felt expression, something that would be at odds with rules and structure.

Before apologizing and advocating for those rules however, I do want to recommend that by all means pray.

Whatever method suits you.

With the rules.

Without the rules.

Pray wherever you are.


Not dressed.

In a bar (or worse).

In a synagogue.

In jail.

In a meeting.

How Ever.



To whomever.

For whatever.

Just pray. 

We can worry about the details later.
