Do you have a prayer that you turn to during times of trauma? Something that’s sustained you in the past? Something you wrote? A song? A piece of traditional liturgy? Have you started praying since Oct. 7? Have you stopped praying?

There are so many questions around the concept of “prayer,” especially in hard times. We are so thankful to be with outstanding educators Rabbi Naomi Levy and Rabbi Elianna Yolkut as they take us on a journey through their own personal stories of prayer in hardship and texts that examine prayer when we face trauma, anxiety, and fear.

This gathering welcomes women* 12+ and learners of all backgrounds. Questions? Email

*SVIVAH defines “Jewish woman” as anyone wishing to be included in a circle of Jewish women. If you want to be here, we want you to be here and welcome.

HerTorah gathers together a diverse community of Jewish women to connect over our shared heritage, explore our collective wisdom, and elevate our communal experience in learning with and from one another. HerTorah is directed by R’Aliza Sperling, made possible in part by support of the Aviv Foundation, The Covenant Foundation, and inspired by each one of us.
