A Prayer for Our Country: a Brief History of Compromise and Resistance

For the last two centuries, Jewish liturgists have framed a variety of prayers for their diasporic, home countries and governments. While patriotic on their face, these prayers often contain subtle notes of ambivalence and protest, providing a rich lens into the relationship between Jews and nation states. In this text study, we’ll read a variety of prayers for states and governments, and consider how these liturgies might inform contemporary practices of political engagement and activism.
