Pop-Up Prayer Class - Keva vs. Kavanah

In prayer we struggle with the structure (keva) vs. the emotional feeling and intention (kavanah) - the fixed prayers of Judaism vs. the spontaneity of praying from the heart.  We'll discuss these two opposite poles of Jewish prayer as Rabbi Kalev & Lilian Alves offer two different approaches that combined, might be the answer to meaningful prayer.
