Kabbalat Shabbat

Welcoming Shabbat in the Synagogue
  • By Lawrence A. Hoffman
$21.79
($29.99)
Product Description

"The prayer book is our Jewish diary of the centuries, a collection of prayers composed by generations of those who came before us, as they endeavored to express the meaning of their lives and their relationship to God. The prayer book is the essence of the Jewish soul."

This stunning work, an empowering entryway to the spiritual revival of our times, enables all of us to claim our connection to the heritage of the traditional Jewish prayer book. It helps rejuvenate Jewish worship in today's world, and makes its power accessible to all.

Vol. 8--Kabbalat Shabbat (Welcoming Shabbat in the Synagogue) features the authentic Hebrew text with a new translation designed to let people know exactly what the prayers say. Introductions tell the reader what to look for in the prayer service, as well as how to truly use the commentaries and to search for--and find--meaning in the prayer book.

Framed with beautifully designed Talmud-style pages, commentaries from many of today's most respected Jewish scholars from all movements of Judaism examine Kabbalat Shabbat from the perspectives of ancient Rabbis and modern theologians, as well as feminist, halakhic, Talmudic, linguistic, biblical, Chasidic, mystical, and historical perspectives.

Contributors include:

Marc Brettler - Elliot N. Dorff - David Ellenson - Ellen Frankel - Alyssa Gray - Joel M. Hoffman - Lawrence A. Hoffman - Reuven Kimelman - Sharon Koren - Lawrence Kushner - Daniel Landes - Nehemia Polen - Wendy I. Zierler
