Kohelet Yeshiva High School implemented several initiatives aimed at enhancing the tefillah
experience and expanding tefillah
education: a tefillah
class entitled Jewish Outlook, special minyanim
throughout the year, an assigned seating system in the Beit Midrash, and the development of a new tefillah
Jewish Outlook was a big success, allowing the school to start teaching tefillah
in a formal manner for the first time. In 2016-2017, students in 9th and 10th grades had a class three times a week for about six weeks overall. These three classes were held during other Judaic Studies subjects, each of which gave up one class from their rotation. In 2017-2018, the class will get its own consistent schedule and class location.
