When the heart is full of gratitude, there is prayer.
When the soul is full of pain, there is prayer.
When it seems there is no one to talk to or nothing to say, there is prayer.
Jewish prayer gives wings to our emotions and words to our yearnings. It has the power to uplift, articulate, and clarify. Formal prayer is important; the Jewish prayer book is a window into many core concepts of Judaism that warm the heart, challenge the mind, and excite the soul. In addition, praying informally, personally, and often, can be a deeply rewarding exercise in spirituality and in our relationship with God.
In this meaningful, touching, and deep book, Ruchi Koval has explained and added personal connection to some of the most fundamental Jewish prayers, as well as created and adapted some new ones for contemporary Jewish women.
In Jewish sources, prayer is referred to as “service of the heart.” With this unique book, we can open our hearts to G-d, our families, and ourselves.
