Editorial Reviews

Review

"Anyone who wants to make use of the traditional prayerbook  especially meaningful would do well to acquire this magnificent commentary. [It] will add to one's appreciation of one of Judaism's most prized treasures—its liturgy."
—Emanuel Rackman, Chancellor, Bar-Ilan University

"Reuven Hammer has achieved brilliantly and with great success what many had thought impossible—an inspirational guide to Jewish devotion wedded to impeccable scholarship."
—Louis Jacobs, author of
Hasidic Prayer

"A useful and enlightening account of the meaning of Jewish prayer. It should be read by all who want to speak to God in the language of Jewish tradition."
—Arthur Hertzberg

"A thoughtful, helpful book that will open the hearts and minds of many Jews to finding new meaning in the traditional prayer."
—Harold S. Kushner

"Those who already know how to pray will find this book enhances their knowledge of the service. For those to whom the service is one vast mystery, it will open the door to greater understanding and spirituality."
—Deborah E. Lipstadt, Emory University

"Accessible and thoughtful . . . a wonderful place for the beginner to start."
—David Teutsch, President, Reconstructionist Rabbinical College

From the Inside Flap

This engaging and informative book provides an introduction to the liturgy of the Siddur--the Jewish prayerbook. More than a "how-to" guide, this resource deals with basic issues for the modern worshiper, the historial compilation of the Siddur, and much more.

1.0 out of 5 stars I didn’t know a book could be defective, but here we are.
Reviewed in the United States on January 26, 2021
This is hard to get into the picture, so I did my best.

I cannot speak to the content of the book because all of the left hand pages don’t have an adequate margin at the spine. So you can not read several words per line, or tear the book apart to see the rest.

Unfortunately I think I’m stuck with this one, because I have tried several acrobatic attempts and the book is bent. So I wouldn’t say avoid this book for the content, but beware of the publishing.
