10 Awesome Texts for the 10 Days of Awe (Day 2)

NOTE: Each day from Rosh Hashanah to Yom Kippur I will be posting an inspiring Jewish text along with a few questions for reflection. Feel free to answer and discuss here, or to use these questions for your own reflection/journaling. These texts are also being posted on my Facebook page.

TEXT 2: From Rebbe Nachman of Breslov (18th century Hasidic leader)

“Make every attempt to pray from the heart. Even if you do not succeed, the effort is precious in God’s eyes.”


  • What does it mean to “pray from the heart?” Can you really fail to do so if you try?
  • Have you ever been unable to pray? What did you do?
  • What part of prayer most moves you – the words? The music? The community? Something else?
