Tefillah Kata

I've been teaching Davvenology - the inner kavvanah of Jewish prayer - at Cong. Kol Emeth in Palo Alto. After a couple of sessions, my students said to me: enough talking about prayer, let's davven, let's actually do it!

I asked my students: what do you want? And one of them, a reputable physicist, said: When I studied Asian martial arts, the teacher taught us a kata, a form, which we practiced every session and at home. Teach us a tefillah kata, a short form of the Saturday morning service, and let's do it together every time we meet.

The sound files in the left side bar constitute the tefillah kata davvening short form which my Davvenology students and I do every time we meet on Shabbat.
