Praying for non-Jews: Praying for non-Jews
The title of this shiur is “Praying for non-Jews.” My first inclination regarding the shiur is to say,” Why not?” and finish the class in less than one minute.
But the there are some interesting ideas associated with prayer that we can explore while remaining attached to the title of the shiur.
So we will discuss prayer and how Judaism views other religions in the context of prayer. I hope that the shiur will be interesting.
