Opens up the traditional Jewish prayer book as a spiritual
resource....This groundbreaking new series involves us in a
personal dialogue with God, history and tradition, through the
heritage of prayer. "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." Framed with beautifully designed
Talmud-style pages, commentaries from many of today's most
respected Jewish scholars from all movements of Judaism examine
Shabbat at home from the perspectives of ancient Rabbis and modern
theologians, as well as feminist, halakhic, Talmudic, linguistic,
biblical, Chasidic, mystical, and historical perspectives. My
People s Prayer Book is a momentous multi-volume series that opens
up the traditional Jewish prayer book (the Siddur) as a spiritual
resource. Commentaries by respected teachers from all perspectives
of the Jewish world provide the spiritual messages that make up the
Siddur. Sometimes awe-striking, sometimes surprising, but always
deeply spiritual, My People s Prayer Book is a gateway to the
riches that the heritage of prayer offers us in our worship, and in
our lives. The seventh volume celebrates Shabbat as a central
family ritual, tracing the development of this loosely structured
liturgy from early prayer books that draw on the classical rabbinic
era, through medieval Jewish practice and the influence of Lurianic
mysticism. Pausing to explore the key moments that mark this sacred
time Erev Shabbat with Kiddush, Kiddusha Rabbah, and Motsa ei
Shabbat with Havdalah Shabbat at Home captures the joy of this holy
day s prayers, blessings, and z mirot (table songs), emphasizing
the renewal of home liturgy in Jewish life and reinforcing the
importance of Shabbat in the Jewish conception of time. Vol. 7
Shabbat at Home features the traditional Hebrew text with a new
translation that lets people know exactly what the prayers say.
Introductions explain what to look for in the prayers, and how to
truly use the commentaries to find meaning in the prayer book.
Commentaries from eminent scholars and teachers from all movements
of Judaism examine Shabbat at Home from the viewpoints of ancient
Rabbis and modern theologians, as well as a myriad of other
perspectives. Even those not yet familiar with the prayer book can
appreciate the spiritual richness of Shabbat at Home. My People s
Prayer Book enables all worshipers, of any denomination, to create
their own connection to 3,000 years of Jewish experience with the
world and with God. Each volume of My People s Prayer Book provides
a new translation of the authentic Hebrew text, with diverse and
exciting commentaries to the traditional liturgy, written by many
of today s most respected scholars and teachers from all
perspectives of the Jewish world. 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."
