"This is a book not only for those interested in the history of various modern siddurim, but also for those who seek prayers which better reflect their personal faith."
Joshua J. Adler, The Jerusalem Post
The making of Jewish prayerbooks began more than a millennium ago and continues today affirming the human need to create heartfelt and precise communication with the divine. In this collection of studies, Eric Friedland explores how that need has been identified and fulfilled in non-Orthodox Jewish liturgy from the mid-1800s through the late 1900s.
Eric L. Friedland earned his Ph.D. in Near Eastern and Judaic Studies at Brandeis University. Since 1968 he has been Harriet Sanders Professor of Judaic Studies, a position that serves the United Theological Seminary, the University of Dayton, and Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio.
