Guided by Lawrence A. Hoffman, The Way Into Jewish Prayer helps us explore the reasons for and the ways of Jewish prayer. It covers: Why we pray. The Jewish paths to God and the many ways that Jews can think of God who is beyond description: a surprising invitation to consider the images of God that have moved the greatest Jewish minds to know they are not alone. How we pray. Fixed prayer and spontaneous prayer, the standard prayer service and the prayer of the heart: the many modes by which Jews transcend the self. Where we pray. In synagogue and home, in sacred community or by ourselves: the Jewish paths to the sacred on which we walk each day. Here is a book that opens the door to 3,000 years of Jewish prayer, by making available all you need to feel at home in Jewish worship from a basic definition of the terms you need to know, to a thoughtful analysis of the depth that lies beneath the Jewish relationship with God.
