|Pesiqta de-Rav Kahana: The Blessed Synagogue|
|Written by Michael Linetsky|
"Rabbi Isaac said: As a gazelle skips from tree to tree . . . so the Holy One leaps from synagogue to synagogue. . . Why? In order to bless Israel."
Prayer at a synagogue is a praiseworthy practice so much so that God bestows His blessing upon each and every congregation.
On some level, this teaching inverts the concept of prayer. One comes to the synagogue not only to pray, to bless but to get blessed.
