9780765761347: Jewish Liturgy as a Spiritual System: A Prayer-by-Prayer Explanation of the Nature and Meaning of Jewish Worship

Readers of this book will emerge with a new awareness of what we as Jews are doing when we pray, why we are doing it, how we are supposed to be affected by prayer, how the prayers came to be as they are today, and how they differ among the major movements of American Judaism. The traditional Jewish liturgy, if properly understood, is a deep and powerful technique for spiritual transformation. However, spiritual depth of prayer has been progressively reduced over the past 2000 years as the underlying currents of the Siddur, the Jewish prayerbook, have been lost to the majority of worshippers. This book explains the Jewish liturgy prayer by prayer, according to what, in the context of ancient and medieval Judaism, was its raison d'? tre: a structure for transforming one's mind and way of life. The author writes: "The crisis Judaism now faces, while genuine, is due not to a lack of depth in the traditional Jewish prayer service, but to a profound and almost universal lack of understanding of that prayer service that pervades all segments of the Jewish community. Jewish prayer services in many contemporary synagogues lack spiritual fervor because the linkage between word and ritual, on the one hand, and mental transformation on the other, that would generate such fervor is not generally known to Jewish adults and is not taught to Jewish children. Unfortunately, the prayer service regularly degenerates into a race through words and gestures divorced from the sequence of mental states and visualizations through which these words and gestures were intended to lead us." This book was written to reunite the activity and language of prayer with its original transformative goal, by educating worshippers about what is at the heart of the siddur. Several chapters provide an overview of the Jewish prayer service and its spiritual flow. These chapters explain the visualizations, allusions, and meditative techniques that form the hea

From the Back Cover:

This book explains the Jewish liturgy prayer by prayer, according to what, in the context of ancient and medieval Judaism, was its raison d'etre: a structure for transforming one's mind and way of life. The author writes: "The crisis Judaism now faces, while genuine, is due not to a lack of depth in the traditional Jewish prayer service but to a profound and almost universal lack of understanding of that prayer service that pervades all segments of the Jewish community. Jewish prayer services in many contemporary synagogues lack spiritual fervor because the linkage between word and ritual, on the one hand, and mental transformation on the other, that would generate such fervor is not generally known to Jewish adults and is not taught to Jewish children. Unfortunately, the prayer service regularly degenerates into a race through words and gestures divorced from the sequence of mental states and visualizations through which these words and gestures were intended to lead us". This book was written to reunite the activity and language of prayer with its original transformative goal, by educating worshippers about what is at the heart of the siddur. Several chapters provide an overview of the Jewish prayer service and its spiritual flow. These chapters explain the visualizations, allusions, and meditative techniques that form the heart of the service and the altered states of consciousness through which the service can move the worshipper, as well as a synopsis of the history of Jewish liturgy and its study. In addition, each major prayer is analyzed in its order of appearance, according to how it fits into the structure and flow of the liturgy as a vehicle for transforming the mind. The book may be used as a companion to the siddur because the prayer sequence is matched to the corresponding page numbers in all of the most widely used siddurim in the United States. Also included is a chart of the morning service (for weekdays and Shabbat) that graphically illustrates not only the structure and history of the prayers, but also the sequence of mind-states to which they correspond. Readers of this book will emerge with a new and highly detailed awareness of what we as Jews are doing when we pray, why we are doing it, how we are supposed to be affected by prayer, how the prayers came to be as they are today, and how they differ among the major movements of American Judaism.

About the Author:

Arnold S. Rosenberg is an attorney in private practice in San Francisco, California. He grew up a Conservative Jew in Rochester, New York, where he learned much of what he knows about Judaism from Rabbi Abraham J. Karp and Cantor Samuel Rosenbaum. After graduating from Cornell University, where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, he attended Harvard Law School and received his J.D. in 1976. Mr. Rosenberg spent the next four years as a poverty lawyer in a Mexican barrio in Chicago, Illinois. Following a stint as a labor lawyer in Chicago and New York, he moved to San Francisco, where he and his family have lived since 1983. He has two children, Julian and Nina.
