The book details the various factors that influenced six important Jewish prayers and shaped how and when Jews recite them. It shows that each prayer has a complex history of which contemporary worshippers are mostly unaware. When we learn about the factors and forces that shaped these prayers and Jewish liturgy in general, our appreciation of what Jewish worship is all about becomes that much more profound.
