The author empowers concerned synagogue goers who, until now, have held back from being the first in their community to broach the same thoughts openly. By means of implementing the book's many workable solutions, the readers will tap into something permanently embedded in Jewish consciousness and discover more modern ways of retrieving its practice.show more
