On this page you can find all the posts that contain examples of tkhines - prayers or supplications often delivered spontaneously, klogenishn - lamentations of mourning women, many of them recorded by ethnographers, and opshprekhenishn - incantations used to ward off an evil eye. 

To learn more about tkhines and other forms of spontaneous prayer, check out the work of my friend and ritual-collaborator, Rabbi Noam Lerman at
