Publisher's Description

A distinguished guide to Jewish prayer, now with a new foreword by respected Rabbi Haskel Lookstein
Why do Jews pray? What is the role of prayer in their lives as moral and ethical beings? From the simplest details of how to comport oneself on entering a synagogue to the most profound and moving comments on the prayers themselves, Rabbi Hayim Halevy Donin guides readers of To Pray as a Jew through the entire prescribed course of Jewish liturgy, passage by passage, ritual by ritual, in this handsome and indispensable guide to Jewish prayer.

Unexcelled for beginners as well as the religiously observant-and now with a new foreword from prominent Rabbi Haskel Lookstein-To Pray as a Jew is intended to show the way, to enlighten, and hopefully to inspire.
