Rabbi Kaplan, Thank you so much for this excellent course on the siddur. I had been saying the prayers without any "fire" because of my lack of knowledge. Since taking your course I feel the "fire" that should be there when I pray and will be there when I pray from time onward. I have listened to several of the classes two to three times because I felt that there was so much in the class that I needed to know. When I did have questions, I would call my Rabbi and ask him to explain it to me. I plan on listening to the course again just because of all of the tangential information that you gave. I want to go and read some of the Rabbis that you have mentioned to learn more of their teachings.

Shabbat Shalom!!! Reply

Dear Rabbi Kaplan,

Thank you very much for the inspirational series on tefilla!

Your presentation style is amazing. Every time I watched your lecture, I had the feeling that you were speaking to each viewer personally. "The word that emerges the heart enters the heart."

May HaShem bless you and your family with good health and success! Reply

Thank you Dear Rabbi Kaplan,

Today I purchased a Siddur so I can start your course from the beginning tomorrow.

Your discussion today elicited thoughts of HaShem being Sovereign of the world, what the world and people would be like, what a difference in my life and improvement in myself.

Thank you, for your faithful inspiration.
