The essential prayers and blessings we will cover include Shavuot blessings, Shabbat blessings, Aliyot for Torah reading, and core prayers like the Shema and V’ahavta. By the end of this course, you will have a solid foundation to understand these key prayers and blessings, enabling you to actively participate in Jewish rituals and ceremonies with confidence.
