Praying with Fire
With its short, relatable daily readings, stories to illustrate every point, and brief summaries at the end of each reading, Praying With Fire for Teens shows teenagers (their parents, too!) how to pray effectively, with focus, concentration, and optimism, so that we get the most out of the fantastic gift Hashem has given us - the gift of prayer.
The Power of Teshuvah
Rabbi Heshy Kleinman shows us how to truly take advantage of this powerful gift, teshuvah. In only five minutes a day, we will learn The abundant benefits of teshuvah; Strategies to clear the path to repentance; The laws of teshuvah; and Techniques to ensure that our repentance lasts. We can improve our lives as we draw closer to and reconnect with Hashem. The Power of Teshuvah will show us how.
Yearning with Fire
In as little as five minutes a day, this book teaches strategies that will help us hasten the redemption - principles that will help us achieve "ahavas chinam," the unity and love for one another that will help bring Mashiach. Here is clear and practical guidance to enrich our prayers, our charity, our Torah study, our Shabbos observance, and our desire for repentance - all important elements in our longing for redemption.
Praying with Meaning
Praying with Meaning looks at the simple meaning of specific words in the tefillah, followed by an examination of the prayer's essential concepts. Then, with his genius for transforming lofty spiritual truths into practical action, the author guides us into visualizing images and finding strategies to bring these concepts into our daily routine. He weaves stories and parables to make clearer to us what the prayers are referring to, and shares important halachic information on each prayer.
He'emanti Ki Adabear
Hashgacha Pratis \ השגחה פרטית program
The He'emanti Ki Adabear Program helps students develop the “eyes to see” Hashem’s workings in everything that transpires in their daily lives. The goal is to give students a strong, clear and personally vibrant sense of Hashem’s real hashgacha, which will, over time, help them connect to the more pervasive and subtle hidden miracles which Hashem showers them every moment of their lives. This recognition is then connected through the concept of “mindfulness” to key words in tefillah, bringing together tefillah and a mindful awareness of God’s Presence in everyday events.
Each student who davens Shacharis and who does not talk, will be eligible to enter a raffle for great prizes. The students’ Tefillah Power material has a Shtika B’Tefillah card printed inside it enabling students to keep track of their success in not speaking during Shacharis. You may print a Shtika B’Tefillah card for each students’ use.

Mispallel b'ad chaveiro
The Gemara teaches: “Ha’Mispaleil b’ad chaveiro hu neheneh techilah, “If one prays for his fellow man, then the one praying benefits first". Why? Because you performed the great mitzvah “love your fellow Jew as you love yourself” by praying for your fellow Jew. Therefore, your prayer for yourself stands a greater chance of being answered.
