On the Doorposts of Your House.
There are times when we want to celebrate the joys and achievements of our lives and mourn our losses and disappointments in the privacy of our own homes. A comfortable, intimate atmosphere surrounded by loved ones can ease the struggles of daily life and heighten those joyous occasions to new levels. Rabbi Chaim Stern, ז״ל, Reform Judaism?s most prolific liturgist, has provided us with On the Doorposts of Your House, an extensive volume of liturgies to be used by individuals and families for all those occasions of joy, loss, festivity and remembrance that occur throughout our lives.
Included in this volume are prayers and readings for pregnancy, birthdays, anniversaries, festivals and achievements, and for the more painful events in life: times of anxiety, the death of a child, illness and disappointments.
This revised edition of On the Doorposts of Your House includes updated translations and transliterations based on the new Reform siddur, Mishkan T?filah.
Anyone seeking to gain greater knowledge and a better understanding of Jewish religion and practice will be drawn to this book. As a reference or for guidance for oneself or to give as an attractive gift, On the Doorposts of Your House is sure to help further the development of spiritual life and bring peace and strength into one?s surroundings.
