The State of Tefilla

In a few short weeks, the President of the United States will give his annual State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress.  It is speech to reflect on the past and speak to policy visions for the upcoming year.

In this spirit, I wanted to hear from some educators regarding the State of Tefilla in schools:
  • Is tefilla strong in your school?  
  • Has there been growth in tefilla?
  • Was there a major challenge that was overcome this past year?
  • Was there a tragedy to an individual or the community that influenced the tefillot of your school?
  • Was there joyous celebration, like Gilad Shalit's release, that led to singing songs of praise and happy tefillot?
  • What was the high point of tefilla and was the low point?
  • What is the state of tefilla to the larger community? 
  • Would people stand and clap at the end of your speech?
No doubt the president, in his speech, makes some honest assessments of events, many rhetorical statements, and spins a yearn to show the country in the best light.  Please feel free to share your experiences.
