Product Description

My People's Prayer Book is a momentous seven volume series that opens up the traditional Jewish prayer book (the Siddur) as a spiritual resource. The first volume of the series, The Sh'ma and It's Blessings, celebrates the oldest and best known of Jewish Prayers. It features authentic Hebrew text with a new translation designed to let people know exactly what the prayers say.
Commentaries from some of today's most eminent scholars and teachers from all movements examine this volume exploring the text from the perspectives of ancient Rabbis and modern theologians, as well as feminist, halakhic, medieval, linguistic, biblical, Chasidic, mystical, and historical perspectives. Even those not yet familiar with the prayer book can appreciate the spirtual richness of the Sh'ma
This book enables all worshippers, of any denomination, to encounter their own connection to 3,000 yearsof Jewish experience with the world and with God. It helps rejuvenate Jewish worship in today's world, and makes its power accessible to all. The My People's Prayer Book series belongs on the library shelf of every home, every synagogue, every sanctuary of prayer. 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.
