Rabbi Debra Orenstein of Congregation B’nai Israel in Emerson will lead “My Prayer Book,” a free two-part adult education series. The series will begin on Thursday, January 14, at 1 p.m., and it will conclude on February 11. Rabbi Orenstein will focus on the history of Jewish prayers and how the prayer book has developed; the class will focus on the Talmud Tractate blessings to learn more about rabbinic perspectives on prayer. It is not necessary to go to both sessions. For information, call (201) 265-2272, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or go to www.bisrael.com.
