Ask The Rabbi

Do you have a question for Rabbi Ziansi? If so, ask below:

This week's question: Rabbi, why do we pray?

We pray for two reasons. The first is to form a direct relationship with Hashem through talking to Him. God listens and is concerned with our prayers. When we pray we form a direct connection with Him.

Second, when we pray, we are stating our desires and wishes. If we put thought into what we are praying for, we are making ourselves better people just by asking for more important things. Our priorities reflect who we are.

Led by gabaim Michael Krasna and Andrew Wald,the teen minyan is packed with 6th through 12th graders. The mass amount of teens who show up fit perfectly with Gabbaim Michael and Andrew's goal of bringing greater participation to teen minyan this year.

A point of pride for teen minyan was the amount of teens who join teen minyan for the first time. With our veteran and new teens attending each week we look forward to a great year of teen minyan.
