A Look Inside
Main Description
A new and lucid presentation for both Jew and non-Jew of the development and contemporary significance of Jewish liturgy.
Unpaid Annotation
No other product of the Jewish heritage reaches as deeply in the heart and mind of the Jewish people and no other religious work reflects as full the spiritual history of the Jewish people as the Siddur. No wonders the worship of the synagogue has intrigued both laymen and scholars. This book should be of interest to both Jew and Gentile. For a concise yet authentic summary of pharisaic Judaism nothing equals the Siddur, the core of which composed by the rabbis of the Talmud. It is also hoped that this book will prove useful as a text for advanced students in the synagogue and for college students.
