The Orthodox Union’s Department of Community Services will present a stimulating and powerful lecture, “The Secrets to Powerful Prayer: Making Our Tefillot Personal and Meaningful,” featuring world-renowned speaker, author and educator Rabbi Paysach Krohn, in Deerfield Beach on Wednesday, February 25, at 8:00 p.m.

The event, which is co-sponsored by Touro/Lander College and is free of charge, is part of the Community Services Department’s “Tefillah Education Initiative,” launched this past Fall, to assist people in injecting their personal prayers with meaning and passion. An audience of 800 people is expected to attend.

Frank Buchweitz, National Director of the Department of Community Services and Special Projects, declared, “Rabbi Paysach Krohn is a wonderfully inspirational speaker who can motivate individuals into creating a more personal and significant relationship with God through prayer.”
