Every prayer has a story. When the rabbis of the Talmud wanted to explain what a prayer means they told the story of the first time a prayer was said. They would root each prayer in the spiritual history of major Jewish figures. By knowing these stories, we get a sense of what each prayer should mean to us. By speaking of famous moments that were human breakthroughs with God, we get to look at our own relationship with God.

In this book Joel Lurie Grishaver presents an introduction to almost every prayer in the siddur and stories that root the prayer in the heart. Here is an original way of looking at the liturgy and unfolding the meaning that is to be found there. Are you a rabbi, an educator, a camp person, a youth group leader, a Jew who wants to find prayer meaningful? Here is a book you need, a book that will expand your resources and understanding.Torah Aura Productions publishes books for Jewish schools and families that help celebrate our heritage and our faith.
