Biblical Insights on the Morning Blessings: From Eden to Isaiah to Socrates
Rabbi Menachem Leibtag / November 8, 2012
We are so familiar with the morning blessings in the Siddur that we often recite them by rote, without paying attention to their deeper meaning. In our session, we will discuss the Biblical (and sometimes Greek) origins of these blessings to better appreciate their underlying message and how they form a wonderful way to ‘start the day.’
