When the heart is full of gratitude, there is prayer.
When the soul is full of pain, there is prayer.
When it seems there is no one to talk to or nothing to say, there is prayer.

Jewish prayer gives wings to our emotions and words to our yearnings. It has the power to uplift, articulate, and clarify. Formal prayer is crucial. In addition, praying informally, personally, and often, can be a deeply rewarding exercise in spirituality and in our relationship with Hashem.

In this meaningful, touching, and deep book, Ruchi Koval has explained and added personal connection to some of the most fundamental Jewish prayers, as well as created and adapted some new ones for contemporary Jewish women - all written for all Jewish women, whether observant , just Jewish , or just beginning to daven.

A brief introduction precedes each prayer explaining when it is said and it's purpose. Each prayer includes the original Hebrew text, as well as transliteration, and a translation that brings out it's essence. Following the prayer is a "takeaway" which makes the prayer personal and help internalize it's message.

Tefillah is referred to as service of the heart. With this unique book, we can open our hearts to G-d, our families, and ourselves.

What is a holy woman, or a holy man for that matter? According to the Jewish mystics, a holy person is someone who has not lost the holiness that every baby is born with. A holy person is someone who fulfills it. Stories about Jewish holy women have rarely been collected in such an engaging and entertaining form. The tales display a specifically female Jewish spirituality, giving us a peek into a world of devotional beauty that focuses on kindness. These stories of laughter and tears, humility and bravery, striving and trance, have an appeal spanning the denominational spectrum: they are spiritual nourishment for the soul. The rabbis say there are both male and female angels and angels are on earth as well as in heaven. These tales enhance our appreciation of the female angels on earth.

Winner of:
2013 National Jewish Book Award

For centuries, Jews have turned to the Mourner's Kaddish prayer upon experiencing a loss. This groundbreaking book explores what the recitation of Kaddish has meant specifically to women. Did they find the consolation, closure, and community they were seeking? How did saying Kaddish affect their relationships with God, with prayer, with the deceased, and with the living? With courage and generosity, 52 authors from around the world reflect upon their experiences of mourning. They share their relationships with the family members they lost and what it meant to move on; how they struggled to balance the competing demands of child rearing, work, and grief; what they learned about tradition and themselves; and the disappointments and particular challenges they confronted as women. The collection shares viewpoints from diverse perspectives and backgrounds and examines what it means to heal from loss and to honor memory in family relationships, both loving and fraught with pain. It is a precious record of women searching for their place within Jewish tradition and exploring the connections that make human life worthwhile.

To better understand and fully appreciate the unique role of a Jewish woman, one must consider not only the big picture but the biggest picture of all: nothing less than the purpose of creation.

The profundity and essential meaning of Jewish womanhood lies at the heart of Nefesh Chaya: The Unique Avodas HaShem of the Jewish Woman.

The author employs his dynamic approach to Torah Judaism to shed light on such fundamental concepts as: a woman s essential power, the deeper meanings of modesty, the importance of prayer, a woman s role in education, the image of a Jewish mother, creating a sanctuary in the home, and more.

The book is fittingly named after the author s wife, Rebbetzin Chaya Pincus, and concludes with an eloquent tribute to both her and their daughter Miriam Pincus. All three Rabbi Pincus, his wife, and their daughter perished in a tragic auto accident, in April, 2001.

Combining wit, wisdom, an informal, personal style, along with fascinating and inspiring Talmudic insights, this innovative work reveals the precious heart and soul of what it means to be a Jewish woman.



Rav Shimshon Dovid Pincus was a world-renowned speaker and educator who inspired and influenced Jewish audiences around the world in the decades he spent traveling, gracing seminars, classrooms, lecture halls, week-end retreats and special events.

His profound teachings appear in print under the series heading: Nefesh Shimshon.

To all topics, Rabbi Henkin brings halachic stature, scholarship and erudition.
