Prayer

Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel z”l teaches, “Prayer is meaningless unless it is subversive, unless it seeks to overthrow and to ruin the pyramids of callousness, hatred, opportunism, falsehood. The liturgical movement must become a revolutionary
movement, seeking to overthrow the forces that continue to destroy the promise, the hope, the vision. To pray is to stake our very existence, our right to live, on the truth…of that which we pray for. Prayer, then, is radical commitment, a dangerous
involvement in a life that could be God’s.”
