Daily Jewish prayer includes many Psalms. Rabbi Avi Baumol has written a beautiful book that will allow you to gain greater meaning and connection from your daily prayers. Through his erudite writing, he is able to unlock the mystery and depth of the various psalms that comprise the daily prayer services.
The book opens with an introduction to prayer, Psalms, and biblical poetry. Following this Rabbi Baumol gives an overview of the structure of the morning service and examines either a prayer adapted from a Psalm or the entire Psalm and explains the reason that it was chosen as part of the liturgy.
