concepts.  And we have a problem with prayer.

Let’s explore the problem of prayer in light of the changing religious norms in the US and the Jewish progressive urge to adapt and adjust to modernity.  What is the place of praise, thanks, gratitude, personal reflection, ethical triage and spiritual searching?
