We believe that the best way to learn something is to experience it on a regular basis.  Because of this, we include weekly t’filah (prayer) experiences, led by a T'filah leader, occasionally joined by one of our Rabbis, for all of the children in Mayim.


Our goals for t’filah are:

  • To develop the children’s capacity for a meaningful prayer experience, including an understanding of the meanings of our prayers;

  • To practice singing, chanting, or reciting our t’filot (prayers) on a regular basis – a reflection of our tradition’s invitation to engage this practice regularly;

  • To learn melodies, styles, and “prayer choreography” regularly used at TBS;

  • To provide older children with opportunities to lead prayer.


30 minutes of every session are spent in t’filah. Music and singing are infused throughout the experience.  Parents are invited and encouraged to come join us whenever they are able.
