About Legacy 613
Legacy 613 is the first organization dedicated solely to the mission of making prayer meaningful −intellectually and experientially − in the life of every Jew, young or old.
Prayer (tefillah) is a personal, vital, and meaningful experience. Yet sadly, many Jews, from millennials to baby boomers and beyond, don’t connect with it. There are Jews who pray regularly, yet don’t fully understand what they’re saying. Others don’t pray and don’t know what they’re missing. Legacy 613 aims to change that!
Through Legacy 613’s dynamic educational programming and publications, Jews will learn that tefillah is more than simply reciting blessings, petitioning God or praising Him. They will be able to internalize the understanding that tefillah is about our relationship with God — our personal lifelong connection with the only One who can make things happen.
Today, when challenges to our faith are ever-present, tefillah education and the discussions that will emerge from that education about God and faith are more critical than ever.
Legacy 613 is dedicated to “inreach” to observant Jews and outreach to unaffiliated Jews, fostering a Jewish experience so meaningful, joyful, and infused with inspiration that all Jews will want to connect with their heritage.
In order to achieve its mission, Legacy partners with like-minded organizations, foundations, and schools to provide vision, educational expertise, and resources in developing effective tefillah programming and instructional materials.
