Tefillah Resources - May

"The Hebrew word for prayer, tefila, which can be translated as "self-judging," contains the notion that prayer is not about getting God to do something for you, but is a way of affecting change in yourself, a process of meditation, reflection, and stock-taking."
-- Living A Jewish Life: Jewish Traditions, Customs, and Values for Today's Families (page 163) by Anita Diamant
