Why were Jewish prayers
so standardized and fixed in

Survivors of 1945
invite everyone to participate in our

form and content?
As early as in Talmudic times
it was realized that a fixed and
standardized text was necessary
so as to protect the liturgy from
the intrusion of foreign ele-
ments which might have intro-
duced various non-Jewish doc-
trines into the Jewish prayers.
In the time of the Gaonim this
was especially a danger because
of the Karaites, who denied the
authority of the Talmud and
who developed theories which
were contrary to basic Jewish
Law and Philosophy. Further-
more, a standardized liturgy
was a means of developing a
sense of universalism and com-
munity spirit amongst worship-
pers of the Jewish fatih because
it meant that Jews all over the
world were using the same
prayers. It also tied together
Jews of various historical per-
iods giving Jews a sense of his-
toric continuity in their prayers.
Perhaps no other instrument
has served as well as to unite
Jews all over the world as has
the standardized texts of our
prayer s. Furthermore, the
standardized texts have cap-
tured the thoughts, ideas and
aspirations as well as the needs
and desires of the worshipers
in a depth of feeling and an
economy of language as well as
in the most beautiful of literary
expressions. The language of
the fixed texts has a moving
effect upon the worshiper who
has some understanding of its

Why are most all Jewish
prayer texts composed in the
plural rather than in the
singular?
Samuel, the third century
Babylonian scholar of Talmudic
times, laid down the rule that
one is obligated to include the
entire community in his prayers
(Berakoth 49b). In the first
place our best chance for Sal-
vation and fulfillment comes
through the grace of the group
of the community before the
eyes of the Lord. While we may
be undeserving individually. we
may be answered as part of the
people of Israel. Even if we are
fit to be answered individually,
we have not done our part in-
deed, if we show no concern for
others who may not be so vir-
tuous. Being concerned only!
with one's self is rather a self-
ish and unwise attitude. Indeed
our blessings are that much
more meaningful in a blessed
society.
