Rabbi Abraham J. Twerski M.D. has written many a memorable and masterly tome, but this popular-sized edition of his best-selling Prayerfully Yours may well be the masterpiece for which he will be remembered.
In Twerski on Prayer,
Rabbi Twerski responds to the inner need of countless thousands: How
can I get the most out of my prayers? How can I use prayer to bring
myself closer to my Maker?
Rabbi Twerski quotes the chassidic
master Rabbi Moshe of Sambur: "The Torah is what G-d gave to man. It is
the G-d-given method whereby we can bond with Him. Prayer is what man
gives to G-d. It is the means whereby we can bind Him to us." Marvelous
words! Inspiring words!
In this book, Rabbi Twerski shows us how
to translate those words to reality. In his unique and winning manner,
he explains and comments on many of the daily, Sabbath, and festival
prayers. Interspersed with his comments are essays that explain many of
the practices and customs associated with the Siddur.
This is not
a typical Twerski book. It is an original and priceless contribution to
every Jew's service of the heart, a book that will be cherished and
read over and over again.
Twerski on Prayer is the 7" x 9" popular-sized edition of Rabbi Twerski's Prayerfully Yours.
