Music, Carrier of Intention in 49 Jewish Prayers, a Jewish music anthology. Music Mind & Body Spirituality
What does a particular liturgical song mean in a community, and in an individual heart?
What is your personal story of connection to music, song, chanting, and spiritual lyrics?
How does music change a life or bring back memories of a time of transformation?
How are new songs, lyrics and music birthed in the Jewish community?
These questions and more are explored by the authors-rabbis, cantors, poets, healers, and musicians, who share their wisdom and delight with you.
Music, Carrier of Intention in 49 Jewish Prayers is a window into the heart and spirit of a profoundly diverse Jewish prayer community.

Forty plus authors open their hearts to you and share the ways in which music, song, prayer and Judaism have touched each of them. They come to you from diverse backgrounds-East coast to West coast, North America and beyond, Orthodox and Conservative to Reform, Reconstructionist, Jewish Renewal and more.
Each section is a prompt for individual and communal soul searching. It will provide you, your book group or spiritual community with the tools to pray more joyfully and intentionally.
