I learned that tefilla was established in place of the korbanos after the destruction of the second temple. Did any sort of similar thing, meaning standardized prayer service, become instituted after the destruction of the first temple? And if not, why not?

  • My understanding was that synagogues and tefilla existed at the time the second temple still stood. Correct? – Dennis Jul 10 '14 at 16:19
  • based on the shiur i linked in the question it would seem they did but in a much less organized way. tefilla as a ritual service certainly doesn't seem to have existed - hence the question – user6641 Jul 10 '14 at 16:53
  • did Korbanot continue in between the destruction of the first and the establishing of the second temple? – rosends Jan 1 '18 at 14:25

According to that same shiur they knew they would be rebuilding the beit hamikdash so there was no need to establish a prayer service. it wasn't until the destruction of the second temple where people despaired of rebuilding the temple that they needed to find a "replacement" for korbanot and instituted a set tefilla
