"Visual T'filah brings modernity into harmony with tradition, unifies a community and renews energetic enthusiasm for prayer."
-Rabbi Zoë Klein “These screens may just allow us to be more present as part of a worshiping community in ways we might not often be afforded.”
-Rabbi Billy Dreskin “I enjoyed being able to look up toward the Bimah while praying. I felt more a part of the congregational prayer than usual.”
- MS “The visuals behind the words added to the spiritual feeling
as we prayed.” The creative imagery was phenomenal, providing thematic emphasis and touches of magic, lifting this multi-generational prayer experience to a new level of engagement, wonder, joy and contemplation. Grandparents and grandchildren alike felt invited to reflect upon traditional melodies in new and profound ways.
---Rabbi Zoë Klein “We’re finding that congregants of all ages benefit from projected images. Kids think it's cool. Older members appreciate not having to hold a prayerbook and often think the screens are easier to look at. High school students don't come because of it, but once there, they react wonderfully to it.”
-Rabbi Billy Dreskin Visual T'filah Advantages: Throughout our history,
the prayer service has
changed based on
the needs of the people
the available
technology 60% of the population are visual learners "The visuals help us engage more deeply in prayer
and the meaning/impact of prayer."

We are innovators
We are building a Judaism for our grandchildren
