Rabbi Reuven Hammer brings to completion his monumental work on the Jewish prayerbook. Together with the first volume, published five years ago, he has produced a unique work: the first complete English language commentary on all the prayers for the services of Shabbat, Festivals and Weekdays. These volumes include material on the history of all the prayers, a phrase-by-phrase commentary, a linguistic, literary and theological explanation of their structure and meaning as well as interpretations meant to make them relevant for the modern worshipper. The words of Louis Jacobs concerning Hammer's earlier work on liturgy,Entering Jewish Prayer, apply to this commentary as well - "Reuven Hammer has achieved brilliantly and with great success what many had thought impossible - an inspirational guide to Jewish devotion wedded to impeccable scholarship."

This commentary on the Weekday siddur, Siddur Sim Shalom, features scholarly commentary, supplemental material from classical and contemporary sources, and extensive introductory material. Like the Shabbat volume, this book offers a comprehensive education in the depth, perspective, and possibilities inherent in the siddur.
