Jewish Liturgy: A Guide for Everyone
We tend to think of the synagogue service as an ancient rite that we inherited with few changes from Talmudic times, until the Reform movement sparked a modern period of change. In fact, although some basic structures have been handed down to us from late antiquity, Jewish liturgy has been continually evolving.
Where does Jewish liturgy come from? And how did prayer services begin? This book explores these and other questions.
"This is a beautifully crafted resource and guide for your studies in Jewish prayer, by the gifted Hazzan and liturgist Abbe Lyons. "
