About the Book

Images of Prayer: An Art Siddur for Shabbat Morning is designed for adults who are looking for a spiritual connection to Jewish worship. Thirty original paintings, imbued with symbolism through subject, color, and composition, seek to reveal the hidden wisdom of essential elements of the liturgy common to all Jewish practice.

This reader-friendly companion to any siddur (prayer book) introduces the artwork within the framework of five sections or movements of the Saturday Morning Service. Accompanying each image is a meditative commentary that explains its meaning in reference to the blessing or prayer that it represents, along with historical and practical notes on the liturgy. Take another look at the language of prayer and discover the beauty and mystery of the Divine.
