Item description for Around the Family Table: Songs and Prayers for the Jewish Home, Pocket Edition by Shlomo Riskin...

Around the Family Table is a practical and inspiring book of devotion and prayer for the Jewish home. Many uplifting and ancient Jewish traditions are rooted in the home and celebrated with the family. This book of prayer and celebration is intended to serve as a guide for meaningful expressions of the Jewish experience at home. Inspiring stories and personal commentary by the author supplement the text throughout.

Blessings and songs celebrating the entire year of Jewish festivals and Sabbaths, in Hebrew, with English instructions and translations, make this work of fundamental value for the Jewish home.

From the blessings said on festivals and for Hannukah candle lighting to birth celebrations for boys as well as for girls, the marriage ceremony and blessings, prayers for inaugurating a new house, and other momentous life cycle occasions, all are marked with traditional praise and holy words. Rabbi Riskin's sensitivity and unique imprint is present throughout this comprehensive and handy companion.

Reviews - What do customers think about Around the Family Table: Songs and Prayers for the Jewish Home, Pocket Edition?

A truly enriching work  Jan 20, 2006
Rabbi Riskin is one of the most important and dynamic Jewish teachers and leaders of our generation. He is among other things one of the founders of the community of Efrat in Israel. I have for some years now used his outstanding Haggadah at our Pesach table. In this present work as with the Haggadah he provides explanations and commentary which deepen and enrich the experience of celebrating around the family table.
A truly enriching work.
