  • About the Editor
  • 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.”
    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.
    Vol. 10—Shabbat Morning: Shacharit and Musaf (Morning and Additional Services) features the authentic 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.
    Framed with beautifully designed Talmud-style pages, commentaries from many of today’s most respected Jewish scholars from all movements of Judaism examine Shacharit and Musaf from the perspectives of ancient Rabbis and modern theologians, as well as feminist, halakhic, Talmudic, linguistic, biblical, Chasidic, mystical, and historical perspectives.
    Commentators:
    Marc Brettler: Our Biblical Heritage
    Elliot N. Dorff: Theological  Reflections
    David Ellenson: How the Modern Prayer Book Evolved
    Ellen Frankel: A Woman’s Voice
    Alyssa Gray: Our Talmudic Heritage
    Joel M. Hoffman: What the Prayers  Really Say
    Lawrence A. Hoffman: History of the Liturgy
    Lawrence Kushner and Nehemia Polen: Chasidic and Mystical Perspectives

A virtual pantheon of liturgical and historical scholars help make the ancient siddur come alive and show us its beauty, splendor and majesty. For every Jew and non-Jew who wants to fathom the mysteries of Jewish prayer."
