Are you still confused about how to wrap Tefillin? Do you love the Havdalah service, but want to learn the blessings so you can sing along? USY leadership is here to help you!
Do you have a service outline or Tefillah roles form to share? Email Amy Dorsch at email@example.com  to share it!

The Amidah is the core of the Jewish prayer service, recited three times daily. It consists of 19 blessings that can have personal meaning and significance for the individual. Do you feel connected at all to this prayer? Or do you find yourself sitting quietly while others around you seem to be “into it?” The a-ME-dah project goal is to help USYers find meaning wiht the individual brachot of the Amidah. Keep checking for updates as Gila’s project grows. Here’s the first video.
Each link leads you to an instructional Youtube video on different Jewish customs and rituals. You can watch the video and follow along at your own pace and learn the “how-tos” of living Jewishly.
