A Jewish Woman’s Prayer Book is a beautiful and moving one-of-a-kind collection that draws from a variety of Jewish traditions, through the ages, to commemorate every occasion and every passage in the cycle of life, from the mundane to the extraordinary.
This elegant, inspiring volume includes special prayers for the Sabbath and holidays and important dates of the Jewish year; prayers to mark celebratory milestones,
such as bat mitzva, marriage, pregnancy, and childbirth; and prayers for comfort and understanding in times of tragedy and loss.
Each prayer is presented in Hebrew and in an English translation, along with fascinating commentary on its origins and allusions.
Culled from a wide range of sources, both geographically and historically, this collection testifies that women's prayers were - and continue to be — an inspired expression of personal supplication and desire
