In the Narrow Places: Daily Inspiration for the Three Weeks
Maggid Books /OU Press
As a clear communicator and expert teacher who knows how to reach her readers, Brown makes a positive contribution to meditations on the significance of the three weeks before the High Holidays as a time for spiritual growth, inspiration, and recollection of Jewish memory turned into practice, misery into repentance, catastrophe into redemption, and expanded consciousness.
For each day of the Three Weeks, Brown presents an inspirational essay followed by a kavana—an exercise involving “reflection, imagination, or action to integrate the learning.” While not a work in the halakhah of the Three Weeks, Brown’s work stands on its own, seeing hope in gloom.
