Gift of Prayer, A: The Spirituality of Jewish Women
What are the prayers that women pray, the meditations of their hearts? Women of Reform Judaism, The Federation of Temple Sisterhoods, has collected the writings of its members and of women rabbis to create this gift book of personal prayers, poetry, reflections and meditations for every occasion in a woman"s life. A Gift of Prayer speaks to women of all faiths, celebrating life"s joys and offering the comfort needed to endure the struggles and crises we all face.
In A Gift of Prayer, women share their hopes and doubts with us-and with God. They grope for understanding, rejoice at the birth of a grandchild, remember seeing a loved one for the last time, or say a blessing upon seeing a rainbow. Their writings are accompanied by the work of Jewish artists on the theme of prayer-prayer inspired by nature, by ritual or by awe of the Divine. The result is a gift of words and art for every woman.
Thirty-eight prayers, poems and meditations
Accompanied by the artwork of many gifted contemporary artists
