“Reuven Hammer's comprehensive commentary on the siddur is such a welcome addition to Conservative Jewish liturgy. It recognizes the difference between understanding the words of a prayer and understanding the prayer. Rather than simply translating, it explains the meaning and purpose of the prayer in its context – its history, theology, and relationship to the prayers around it. More than telling us what we are saying, it guides us to understand why we are praying these words.” – Harold Kushner.
