Bible and Theology
A completely new translation of the Shabbat and Festival siddur with commentary and contemporary readings throughout. This siddur represents the coming of age of Conservative Jewish liturgy. Publication November 2015
Modernity has provided more than enough reason to give up believing in holiness, still we have learned that to give up the struggle to achieve it means we have become less than human. We choose not to retreat from the world, but to struggle within it, to stain ourselves with sin even as we seek to establish the good.
A translation in a contemporary voice accompanies the traditional High Holiday text. The inviting layout includes commentary explaining the meaning of prayers and readings which provide aids to finding one's own voice in the prayer book.
