Our elective based tefillah program offers various options for students to connect to prayer in a way that is most meaningful to each student individually. One elective offered was a tefillah vaad. The vaad was a group of self selected students who were tasked with designing and implementing the electives that were offered during the next semester. While those students ran their electives for other students, the next group of vaad members were working on the next semesters options of electives.
