Περίληψη / Abstract
This qualitative research aims to explore the experiences of students in the implementation of prayer services in religious high schools in Israel. Twenty boys aged 16-18 years old from four different schools were interviewed as part of this qualitative research study. Interviews were conducted with these students during 2017-2018.
The research focused on what students felt were the goals of prayer services in schools, and the challenges faced in their implementation. The research points to a whole range of reasons why these services are not maximizing their impact on the religious development of many students. Most interestingly, the research highlights the opinions of students about how these services can be improved to provide a more meaningful experience for them. While this research was conducted within the ethos of Jewish religious schools in Israel, it provides important data about students’ views on prayer and their spiritual development which can be of value to other religious denominations as well.
