This sim­ple and pro­found col­lec­tion of med­i­ta­tions, poet­ry and prayer is from well-known litur­gist Alden Solovy, whose voice emerged after the sud­den death of his wife from trau­mat­ic brain injury. This resource offers prayers of joy, thanks and praise. It also tack­les chal­leng­ing top­ics includ­ing can­cer, infer­til­i­ty, Alzheimer’s dis­ease, gun vio­lence and alco­holism and includes a vari­ety of spe­cial­ized Yizkor (memo­r­i­al) prayers. Jew­ish Prayers of Hope and Heal­ing is an essen­tial addi­tion to a life of prayer, includ­ing more than 150 new prayers, a pro­logue by Rab­bi Susan Sil­ver­man and a for­ward by Rab­bi William H. Lebeau. Many of the prayers include Eng­lish, Hebrew and translit­er­at­ed clos­ings. Jew­ish Prayers of Hope and Heal­ing is a resource for moments of sor­row and cel­e­bra­tion. It will deep­en your spir­i­tu­al voice and become a vital guide to per­son­al prayer.
