- So wrote Rabbi Meir Aldabi six centuries ago in his Shevilei Emunah. He spoke not only for himself, but for all the saints and scholars, mystics, philosophers, Hasidim and Misnagim from the time of our father Abraham to today's tape-recorded shiurim. In this wide-ranging anthology, Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan has provided us with a key to the vast literature on Jewish prayer.
- How can I pray? How should I pray? How can I pray with proper concentration? Why is the Siddur arranged the way it is? Why are there so many different rites? Why do we need a synagogue? Set times for prayer? Why do we need a minyan?
- Each of these questions has its allotted place in this volume. Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan has answered them in the ways that only four-thousand-year-old Jewish tradition provides.
- The contribution of Aryeh Kaplan to Jewish thought and Jewish feeling has not ceased with his untimely passing. In his life he produced a prodigious number of original works, translations, commentaries and anthologies, all designed to raise the "Jewish consciousness" of all kinds of Jews from all sorts of backgrounds. One of his primary concerns was prayer, and A Call to the Infinite my be his greatest work on that subject. All of us have something to learn from it.
