Praying What We Mean: An Exploration of Some Aspects of Liturgical Change

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, September 2, 1994

Language during prayer can affect the intent of the experience. Excluding women with the absence of feminine qualities in God or referring to God as a king who is distant from his people in the liturgy has a negative impact and renders praying unfulfilling. Changing this language, while preserving tradition as much as possible, is a necessary step.
