Why Do We Say Avinu in Hashiveinu and S'lach Lanu?
Show Notes

Length: 30
Synopsis: This morning (1/12/22), in lieu of Mishlei, we set out to do a Q&A, but ended up discussing a tefilah-related question and learning tefilah commentaries to find the answer. For that reason, I'm treating this as a separate tefilah shiur. We didn't attempt to understand EVERY phrase in these two berachos, but we did come up with some nice ideas about the use of "Avinu" and "Malkeinu" in these two berachos.
