Reviews - What do customers think about To Pray As A Jew: A Guide To The Prayer Book And The Synagogue Service?

Pretty good book  Dec 25, 2007
I bought this to gain a deeper understanding of the history and meaning behind the different prayers one hears in shul or one recites during the day. Well, it worked. A logically arranged work of study that casts light on the what and why of the prayer services. It does get into the minutae, but not in a way that overwhelms.
 
very good book  Aug 1, 2007
I'm very pleased with the material enclosed in this book. It's an useful instrument for people persuing conversion to Judaism as well for Jews in process of learning about the liturgy at the Synagogue and getting familiar with the Blessings and Prayer Book(Siddur).

Excellent and informative  Jul 27, 2006
I was raised in an orthodox household but always had questions about certain ritual affairs and activities that occured in a shul. Not only did this book answer many of my questions, it even went further and discussed the morning prayers. This book should be a MUST read. In fact, I liked it so much, I gave it to my younger brother and his wife (as PART of a larger wedding gift package). I truly recommend it.
 
True to Form  Jul 5, 2006
A very good explanation of the Siddur ... why certain items are included and their historical back drop. A nice discussion also of how the Sephardic tradition differs from the Ashkenazic.
