Books about Prayer

  1. Have you ever thought about it?

    WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF DAVENING?

    • It can’t be to tell Hashem what we need. He knows that already.
    • It can’t be to ask Hashem to change something He already decreed. Everything He does is for the best, so why should we intervene?
    • It can’t be just to elevate ourselves. If so, how does praying for someone else work?

    WE PRAY EVERY DAY, BUT DO WE UNDERSTAND WHAT WE ARE TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH?

    With profound and penetrating insights gleaned from a thorough review of Torah sources, Insights into Tefillah explains clearly the basics of prayer. One by one, Rabbi Prof. Avraham Weinroth answers the difficult questions associated with prayer, and inspires to a higher level of Divine service. In addition, he discusses: intent (kavanah), preparation before tefillah, praying for the sick, women’s prayer, Birkas Kohanim, and Kaddish.

    Now you too can daven fully and deeply, and achieve true deveikus with Hashem!
