A Treasury of Jewish Wisdom for Reflection, Repentance, and Renewal on the High Holy Days Edited by S.Y. Agnon (295 Pages)Publisher: Schocken Books, 1995
Compiled by S. Y. Agnon, one of the greatest Hebrew writers of the twentieth century and winner of the 1966 Nobel Prize in Literature, Days Of Awe is the long-acknowledged classic companion to the High Holy Days prayerbook. Here in one volume are readings and meditations from the Bible, the Talmud, the Midrash, and the Zohar, to deepen the spiritual experience of the holiest days of the Jewish year. More than three hundred texts, selected from the vast storehouse of Jewish literature from ancient to modern times, are arranged to follow the order of the synagogue service for the High Holy Days.
