“The time has come to make tefillah education a high priority in every yeshiva from early childhood through high school, and beyond. The time has come for a Tefillah Renaissance when the rich personal meanings of our prayers inspire us to new spiritual awareness.”
“I believe that the time has finally come for tefillah to be a field of education in its own right. Jewish education became extraordinarily professional during the past decades when it came to teaching texts; we are finally coming around to realizing that we need to spend more time teaching souls as well.”
What’s Working– What our schools discovered worked best in Tefillah education
Who We Are
Legacy 613 is the first organization to make tefillah a top priority in yeshiva education.
Our mission is to make tefillah meaningful − intellectually and experientially − in the life of every Jew, young or old.
The Tefillah Initiative
Legacy 613 launched the Tefillah Initiative in 2016-2017, partnering with NCSY and six innovative yeshiva high schools across the USA. The pioneer program was extremely successful, taking tefillah education and inspiration to a whole new level and changing the way students relate to their davening on a personal level.
