MS Tefillah and Technology

Throughout this trimester, some 7th and 8th grade students have participated in a prayer (tefillah) elective called “Tefillah and Technology.” Through the use of Twitter and Powerpoint, students have selected various prayers from the siddur and expressed the main ideas and personal connections they feel to these prayers through these technology formats. Students’ powerpoint presentations have been shown at Middle School services, and have helped all of our students connect to these ancient words in new, powerful, meaningful ways.
