Acting and Prayer
When an actor performs Shakespeare, he has to take ancient unfamiliar words and speak them with passion and meaning.  He has to find focus, purpose, and urgency in words and thoughts written by someone else. And if his show is a hit, he has to repeat them daily for months and keep them fresh and alive.  Doesn’t this sound a lot like the challenges of Jewish prayer?  Award-winning theatre director and UCSD instructor Todd Salovey, who has taught acting and directing for more than thirty years leads an interactive workshop in which acting techniques are the basis for more soulful, meaningful, and purposeful prayer.
