My Peoples Prayer Book by Rabbi Lawrence A. Hoffman
Book DescriptionA diverse and exciting commentary to the traditional liturgy for celebrating Shabbat in the synagogue. Volume eight in this critically acclaimed series (KABBALAT SHABBAT) explores the synagogue liturgy for greeting Shabbat, the beloved Friday night ritual that is perhaps most familiar of all synagogue services, and that features "L'kha Dodi" ("Come my Beloved") as part of the most significant mystical addition to all of Jewish liturgy. MY PEOPLE'S PRAYER BOOK: VOLUME 8 - KABBALAT SHABBAT features the traditional Hebrew text with a new translation that lets people know exactly what the prayers say. Introductions explain what to look for in the prayers, and how to use the commentaries to find meaning in the prayer book. Commentaries from eminent scholars and teachers from all movements of Judaism examine Shabbat in the synagogue from the viewpoints of ancient Rabbis and modern theologians, including such specialised perspectives as liturgical history, Jewish mysticism, the Bible, and rabbinic law.

Naming God, Hardback (July 2015)
An in-depth exploration of the complexities and perhaps audacity of naming the unnameable. Almost forty contributors from all Jewish denominations and from around the world wrestle with Avinu Malkeinu and the linguistic and spiritual conundrum it presents, asking, "How do we name God altogether, without recourse to imagery that defies belief?"
May God Remember, Hardback (August 2013)
Engaging and sobering. Traces the development of Yizkor from the original memorializing of Jewish communities destroyed by the Crusaders to the touching service we have today, and reflects on how we remember both personal losses and the martyrs of history.

The most controversial prayer of the Jewish New Year what it means, who wrote it, why we say it. Thought-provoking and inspiring discussions from a wide range of perspectives on all aspects of this prayer that defies easy understanding."
