    Even to simple for me
    January 27, 2015

    I was hoping this would have been a little bit more in-depth than it is. I was rather disappointed with how simplistic it is. I am not a deep thinker but this is written for someone who knows absolutely nothing about Jewish prayers and practices. If you even have a light knowledge of it than leave this book at the book store.
