Some are required learning, others are optional. Please consult with your tutor for guidance on what prayers to learn, and in what priority. It is best to spend a little time every day to studying instead of attempting to cram information before your lesson. Make an effort to set aside time every day to listen, read, and practice the materials slowly and methodically. And of course, the best way to practice is by participating in services. We look forward to seeing you there, and of course, hearing you at your simcha!
