Tract on Prayer

Updated: Aug 23, 2022

In Tract on Prayer, R. Shalom DovBer Schneersohn, the fifth Lubavitcher Rebbe, expounds on the concept of tefillah (prayer) as understood in Chabad Chasidic philosophy. Building on the Talmudic dictum that prayer constitutes the "service of the heart," Tract on Prayer captures the quintessence of tefillah as the vehicle for attaining attachment to G-d. Here the Rebbe guides the worshiper in preparing for this "divine service of the heart," setting out the role and dynamics of contemplation before and during prayer. In the process of explaining the dynamics of prayer, Tract on Prayer also explores various Kabbalistic and Chasidic concepts.
