Who by Fire, Who by Water
Taking 18 Medieval lines from the liturgy of the Jewish Days of Awe, Hoffman first gives us an exegesis of the passage. Then he presents about 30 essays by Rabbis and religious scholars, all liberal or Reform Jews. Some want to erase it from the liturgy, others reinterpret it, and some show how profoundly it can connect us to God.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Christians who are unaware of how different Jewish prayers and liturgy are from Christian ones --and also how Jews discuss what they pray and hear-- this will be a revelation
For Jews, even lapsed ones, this is a profound spiritual experience
