Blessings and Thanksgiving: Reflections on the Siddur and Synagogue [Hardcover]
By: Joseph B. Soloveitchik
Edited by: Rabbi Shalom Carmy and Dr. Joel B. Wolowelsky
This volume contains ten studies on prayer, based on previously unpublished manuscripts and edited transcripts of public lectures, as well as essays newly translated from Yiddish and Hebrew, by Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik. Prayer was a central concern of the Rav, and he approached this theme in a variety of different modes. As the editors write in their preface to the volume, Blessings and Thanksgiving is "more concerned with the text and texture of prayer than with its underlying structure. In these lectures the Rav plumbs many of the details of prayer instead of restricting himself to examples that further his systematic argument. He addresses individual prayers and blessings in their particularity. . . . Without these essays, the Rav's philosophy of prayer would be drastically incomplete."
