"The prayer book is our Jewish diary of the centuries, a
collection of prayers composed by generations of those who came
before us, as they endeavored to express the meaning of their lives
and their relationship to God. The prayer book is the essence of
the Jewish soul."
This stunning work, an empowering entryway to the spiritual
revival of our times, enables all of us to claim our connection to
the heritage of the traditional Jewish prayer book. It helps
rejuvenate Jewish worship in today's world, and makes its power
accessible to all.
This third volume of the series explores the rich content and
meaning of the P sukei D zimrah, the morning psalms that serve as
the introduction to the larger prayer service. The P sukei D zimrah
sets the tone and prepares the way for the daily transition from
secular routine to the sacred act of communal prayer; Vol. 3 helps
us to appreciate this prayer before the prayer as a profoundly
moving spiritual experience in its own right.
Vol. 3 P sukei D zimrah (Morning Psalms) features the authentic
Hebrew text with a new translation designed to let people know
exactly what the prayers say. Introductions tell the reader what to
look for in the prayer service, as well as how to truly use the
commentaries, to search for and find meaning in the prayer book.
Commentaries from some of today s most eminent scholars and
teachers from all movements of Judaism examine P sukei D zimrah
from the perspectives of ancient Rabbis and modern theologians, as
well as feminist, halakhic, Talmudic, linguistic, biblical,
Chasidic, mystical, and historical perspectives.
Even those not yet familiar with the prayer book can appreciate
the spiritual richness of P sukei D zimrah. My People s Prayer Book
enables all worshipers, of any denomination, to encounter their own
connection to 3,000 years of Jewish experience with the world and
