Guided by Lawrence A. Hoffman, this volume helps us explore the reasons for and the ways of Jewish prayer. It covers why, where and how we pray. Here is a book that opens the door to 3,000 years of Jewish prayer, by making available all you need to feel at home in Jewish worship--from a basic definition of the terms you need to know, to a thoughtful analysis of the depth that lies beneath the Jewish relationship with G-d.
Rabbi Lawrence A. Hoffman, editor of this series, has served over two decades as Professor of Liturgy at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in New York. A world-renowned liturgist, he has combined research in Jewish ritual, worship and spirituality with a passion for the spiritual renewal of contemporary Judaism.
