What is Jewish Prayer? An Introduction to the Theology of Jewish Prayer

I am very happy to announce the release of my second book titled What is Jewish Prayer? An Introduction to the Theology of Jewish Prayer in Kindle and paper back versions. This book is part of an ongoing series of books that are intended to serve as basic introductions to a variety of Jewish topics.  My original focus was to provide resources to the descendants of Crypto-Jews. Indeed the goal is to eventually translate these books into Spanish and eventually Portuguese.

The conciseness of the books, however makes them  I believe an excellent resource for anyone looking to learn about Judaism. They are easy to read and can be finished in roughly an hour or so for the focused reader.


These books are works in progress with planned additions and revisions for those interested in learning more. I look forward to hearing your thoughts and comments.
