P'nai-Or Erev Shabbat Siddur *Temporarily Out of Print*


The P’nai Or Shabbat Morning Siddur and The P'nai Or Erev Shabbat Siddur Second Edition

“Prayer can be electric and alive! Prayer can touch the soul, burst forth a creative celebration of the spirit and open deep wells of gratitude, longing and praise. Prayer can connect us to our Living Source and to each other, enfolding us in love and praise, wonder and gratitude, awe and thankfulness. Jewish prayer in its essence is soul dialogue and calls us into relationship within and beyond.  Through the power of words and melodies both ancient and new, we venture into realms of deep emotion and find longing, sorrow, joy, hope, wholeness, connection and peace. When guided by skilled leaders of prayer and ritual, our complacency is challenged. We break through outworn assumptions about God and ourselves, and emerge refreshed and inspired to meet the challenges our lives offer.”
-from the DLTI brochure, by Rabbis Marcia Prager and Shawn Israel Zevit)

These new Siddurim for Erev Shabbat and Shabbat Morning were created as a vehicle to explore how traditional and novel approaches to Jewish prayer can blend, so that the experience of Jewish prayer can be renewed, revitalized and deepened. It is an ongoing experiment in the spirit of Rav Kook, who wrote, “The old shall be renewed and the new shall be made holy (Letters, Vol I).”
