Paths of Faith: The New Jewish Prayer Book for Synagogue and Home - For Weekdays, Shabbat, Festivals and Other Occasions

by Chaim Stern (Translator)

This is the long-awaited new prayer book for Jewish Sabbath and religious weekday services, which has recently been completed by Rabbi Chaim Stern, noted author of Gates of Prayer and Gates of Repentance. These books have been used for the past thirty years in most of the 800+ Reform Jewish Congregations throughout North America. This historic, gender-sensitive prayer book includes the most comprehensive transliteration of any prayer book in the Reform and liberal Conservative movements, as well as a special and timely section devoted to prayers and meditations for "Troubled Times."
