Prayer Is Part of the Program

The Hebrew community, while united in many ways, still lacks homogeneity in some of our worship practices. To ensure that this crucial summit is a welcoming and inclusive space for everyone,  all of our modules are respectful of these differences. Because we are aware that much of the material is sensitive, can be triggering, and may elicit strong reactions we have included prayer as part of the program.

Prayer is available for believers in Yeshua as the Messiah with Mother Malakah and members of the Women of the Whirlwind (WoW) prayer ministry

Prayer for members of the Tanak Community is available with Emah Naami Bat Lewi and sisters of הנשם Ha Nasheem - the Women 

Rabbis or Brothers who are interested in being available for private prayer with guests, please send an email to [email protected]

Not Just For Women

FAITH LEADERS AGAINST VIOLENCE understands and appreciates the value of balance and have dedicated an entire session to the ways that men are affected, influenced and impacted by various factors socially, spiritually and beyond. We know that as a nation nothing can be done without the active participation of our men. This session is conducted with the assistance of Quentin  Walcott, Co-Executive Director of Connect Inc. Connect is a Harlem based non-profit with outstanding programs working with men and boys of colour. Learn more about Quentin and Connect here
