Description - My Peoples Prayer Book by Rabbi Lawrence A. Hoffman

A 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.
