Mishkan HaLev: Prayers for S'lichot and the Month of Elul
Edited by Rabbi Janet Marder and Rabbi Sheldon Marder

This companion to Mishkan HaNefesh enables communities to
prepare for the Days of Awe with two complete services, one for
Erev Shabbat during the month of Elul and one for S'lichot. Like
the new machzor, Mishkan HaLev is full of beautiful readings,
poetry, meditations, commentary, and translations to ready the
heart and the mind to enter the High Holy Days.
Seven Days, Many Voices: Insights into the Biblical
Story of Creation
Edited by Rabbi Benjamin David

This collection gives us a lens into a wide range of creative
and inspiring thinking about many ways in which the Creation
story may be interpreted and understood. Midrash, theology,
climate justice, human rights, history, and science are just some
of the fields through which the Creation story is examined, by
a collection of today's finest thinkers. Great for individual study
or community learning, this diverse anthology will challenge
assumptions and spark new ideas.

The Book of Blessings: New Jewish Prayers for Daily
Life, the Sabbath, and the New Moon Festival

"A truly magisterial and exciting collection
. . . a remarkable antidote to the spiritual
dissonance created by the traditional prayer
book. . . . Marcia Falk as poet, translator,
and liturgist rekindles the flame of Jewish
ardor and devotion."
-RABBI MOSHE WALDOKS,

With a New Preface by the Author
and New Afterwords by Rabbi David Ellenson, PhD, Rabbi Sue Levi Elwell, PhD,
Rabbi Naamah Kelman, and Rabbi Dalia Marx, PhD

"If anyone can revive the habit of praying, it
is Marcia Falk. . . . In eloquent and inspiring
language, [she] invites the so-called secularist
to pray without sacrificing intellectual or moral
integrity."
-RABBI IRA EISENSTEIN,
President Emeritus,
Reconstructionist Rabbinical College
Through the act of blessing, we awaken our
appreciation of the world's abiding gifts. In
The Book of Blessings, Marcia Falk re-creates
Jewish prayer with new blessings, poems, and
meditations that focus on the sacred potential
of each moment. With a collage of poetic forms,
she invites us to celebrate "the dynamic, alive,
and unifying wholeness within creation."

The Book of Blessings is guide and inspiration to all who seek
an authentic connection to the divine. With this 20th-anniversary
edition, which includes a new preface by the author as well as
new essays by top scholars, Marcia Falk's visionary work is poised,
once again, to help communities all over the world to shape the
conversation around Jewish prayer in essential and novel ways.

A pathbreaking work in the literature of
spirituality, The Book of Blessings offers a
complete liturgy in both Hebrew and English
for use in the home, the synagogue, and the
community. Steeped in dialogue with rabbinic
tradition, the blessings offered here present a
diversity of images that challenge patriarchal
representations of the divine. An extensive
commentary illuminates the liturgy for scholars
and general readers alike.

The Book of Blessings is for those who are in the
habit of praying-and for those who are not. It
is for those who want to supplement and enrich
their experience of the traditional liturgy and for
those who seek alternatives to it. The Book of
Blessings is part of an ongoing conversation that
seeks to keep Judaism vital and responsive to
our spiritual needs and moral concerns.

Honoring Tradition, Embracing Modernity: A Reader

Created in partnership between the Central Conference of
American Rabbis and the Union for Reform Judaism, and
designed for use with the URJ's Introduction to Judaism classes,

of Judaism-its wisdom, its practices, its beliefs, its customs, its
people, and its storied history. Also available in PDF format.
