"In 1786, Giuseppe Coen presented his bride with an exquisite gift: a book of psalms, blessings, and prayers. The volume focused on the concerns of the married woman, in particular her responsibility to create a Jewish home and bear children. In Out of the Depths I Call to You: A Book of Prayers for the Married Jewish Woman , Rabbi Nina Beth Cardin translates these prayers and provides insightful commentary, bringing to light the essence of Jewish women's liturgical and ritual experiences that have long been overlooked by scholars."
