Dov Singer: Living a Prayerful Life



This episode is sponsored by our friends Rabbi Sruli and Hindy Motzen.

In this episode of the 18Forty Podcast, we talk to Dov Singer, Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshivat Mekor Chaim and founder of the Beit Midrash L’Hitchadshut, about how prayer can bring clarity to the essentials of our existence.

Rav Singer helps us understand how we can move our concerns from the “X-axis” (the things we want) to the “Y-axis” (our innermost desires that drive us). In this episode we discuss:

  • What does it mean to be a “prayer man”?
  • How can one effectively set the intention to bring their prayer to a more profound place?
  • What does it mean to have a “chavrusa in davening”?
Tune in to hear a conversation about the role of deep desire within the routine of daily prayer.

Interview begins at 21:00.
