Rabbi Lawrence A. Hoffman, PhD, has served for more than three decades as professor of liturgy at Hebrew Union College–Jewish Institute of Religion in New York. He is a world-renowned liturgist and holder of the Stephen and Barbara Friedman Chair in Liturgy, Worship and Ritual. His work combines research in Jewish ritual, worship and spirituality with a passion for the spiritual renewal of contemporary Judaism.

His many books, written and edited, include seven volumes in the Prayers of Awe series: Who by Fire, Who by Water―Un'taneh Tokef; All These Vows―Kol Nidre; We Have Sinned: Sin and Confession in Judaism―Ashamnu and Al Chet; May God Remember: Memory and Memorializing in Judaism―Yizkor; All the World: Universalism, Particularism and the High Holy Days; Naming God: Avinu MalkeinuOur Father, Our King; and Encountering God: El Rachum V'chanun―God Merciful and Gracious. Hoffman also edited the ten-volume series My People’s Prayer Book: Traditional Prayers, Modern Commentaries, winner of the National Jewish Book Award; and coedited My People’s Passover Haggadah: Traditional Texts, Modern Commentaries, a finalist for the National Jewish Book Award (all Jewish Lights).

Rabbi Hoffman cofounded and developed Synagogue 2/3000, a transdenominational project to envision and implement the ideal synagogue of the spirit for the twenty-first century. In that capacity, he wrote Rethinking Synagogues: A New Vocabulary for Congregational Life (Jewish Lights).

By Michael Lewyn VINE VOICE on January 21, 2006
Format: Hardcover
on the major Shabbat home prayers, especially the Kiddushes and Havdalah. The commentaries are from a variety of perspectives, both ideological (Reform, Orthodox, and Conservative) and subject matter (Tanach, feminist, halachic, theological, historical, etc.). I found the halachic commentary to be the most interesting, since it is of the most practical value for anyone seeking to observe Shabbat.

One thing I would have changed: the 30 pages spent on Shabbat table songs. Because different families use such a wide variety of songs, any attempt to focus on three or four of them is likely to miss a lot of songs used by lots of people, and to use a lot of songs that lots of people have never heard of. I would have preferred to see the extra space spent on Birkat Hamazon (the blessing after meals) since that prayer is almost universally said after Shabbat meals.
