Detail Description

Prior to going to sleep, many Jews recite the prayer which are believed to bring peace and comfort to one as they sleep. Scholars used to teach that during the night demons come searching for innocent souls, however, completing these prayers would protect the from such dangers. The bedtime prayers are structured around the Shema which Jews believe will protect them for the afterlife if they unexpectedly die while sleeping. Other prayers include Psalm 91 and Psalm 3.
