This comprehensive volume teaches and clarifies the laws of prayer. Weaving together halachic, conceptual, philosophical and historical analysis, this book follows the development of the laws of prayer from the earliest sources in the Talmud, through the Rishonim and Acharonim, to the modern day halachic decisors, always reaching a practical conclusion.
This valuable book explains the laws of prayer as they apply throughout the day, from the hand-washing and blessings recited upon waking, through the many laws related to Keri’at Shema and the prayers recited three times daily, to the Shema recited before going to sleep. Also covered in this comprehensive work are Kedusha, Tachanun, Birkat Kohanim, and many more issues relating to proper Jewish prayer.
This book is ideal for anyone looking to understand Jewish prayer. Students, teachers, rabbis, and laypersons should have this book in their home and synagogue libraries for quick reference and extensive study.
