On Monday, January 13, Rabbi Samuel Frankel, LCSW, spoke to members of the Young Israel of Fort Lee on the topic of mindfulness and prayer. Mindfulness can enhance prayer by helping improve focus and concentration and enabling the reader to internalize the words. The group bemoaned the fact that in today’s age prayer is often rushed through and rarely understood or reflected upon meaningfully.

Rabbi Frankel encouraged the audience to use the gift of Torah, mitzvot and minhagim to put mindfulness into practice and see how it can positively affect the overall performance of mitzvot.
