The author of this much-needed book is a Christian father helping his Jewish wife raise Jewish children. Together, they have made many tough decisions. It's no secret that interfaith marriages are complicated, especially when both partners are connected to their own religious faiths and communities. Using a healthy dose of humor and insights gleaned from his own experience, Keen provides couples with practical advice and solutions for how to give children a clear Jewish identity while maintaining a comfort level for both parents. Any family, no matter what the faiths of its individual members, can find his approach relevant. Interfaith homes come in all shapes and sizes; no two are alike. However, the foundations that will help them thrive are the same, and Keen's straightforward ideas are sure to help. Includes perspectives from professionals who work with interfaith families.

Gift of Prayer, A: The Spirituality of Jewish Women

What are the prayers that women pray, the meditations of their hearts? Women of Reform Judaism, The Federation of Temple Sisterhoods, has collected the writings of its members and of women rabbis to create this gift book of personal prayers, poetry, reflections and meditations for every occasion in a woman"s life. A Gift of Prayer speaks to women of all faiths, celebrating life"s joys and offering the comfort needed to endure the struggles and crises we all face.

In A Gift of Prayer, women share their hopes and doubts with us-and with God. They grope for understanding, rejoice at the birth of a grandchild, remember seeing a loved one for the last time, or say a blessing upon seeing a rainbow. Their writings are accompanied by the work of Jewish artists on the theme of prayer-prayer inspired by nature, by ritual or by awe of the Divine. The result is a gift of words and art for every woman.

Features:

  • Thirty-eight prayers, poems and meditations
  • Accompanied by the artwork of many gifted contemporary artists
  • The perfect gift for B'not-Mitzvah

Yoga Shalom (Book, DVD, and CD)

Yoga Shalom is a unique worship experience that brings together body, mind, and spirit for an extraordinary prayer service. Combining the two powerful spiritual disciplines of Jewish worship and yoga practice, Yoga Shalom leads to deeper understandings of both, or as author Lisa Levine writes of her initial forays into yoga as a cantorial student, I learned to be more present in my prayers and meditations so I could better pray with and on behalf of my congregation.

Duties of the Soul: The Role of Commandments in Liberal Judaism

This outstanding anthology of thirteen essays by esteemed leaders of the Reform rabbinate reexamines the role of mitzvot in liberal Judaism as viewed through philosophical, experiential, and practical contexts. In this groundbreaking collection, Niles E. Goldstein and Peter S. Knobel identify the challenges of living as a Reform Jew in today's rapidly changing world.

Coming from a wide range of experiences and viewpoints, the essayists contend that for Judaism to survive, Reform Jews must find a balance between maintaining a strong presence in the arenas of social action and basic Reform principles and adopting a strong ideology of observance, tradition, and literacy.

  • Includes 13 essays with an introduction by the editors
  • Authoritative works by key leaders of the Reform movement
  • Comprehensive look at today's understanding of mitzvot
