Be the first to review this product

For the first time in the modern ara, a new liturgical work written by women for the traditional and general Jewish community.
Shaarei Simcha, an inclusive, halakhic birkon, is a cutting edge prayer book for use by scholars as well as lay people, women and men, singles and married couples, people with or without children. All will be comfortable using this newly compiled edition containing Grace After Meals as well as many other prayers and rituals for Shabbat and for life cycle events.

Shaarei Simcha has been edited by Adena K. Berkowitz and Rivka Haut and carefully explains and expands upon women's role in religious ritual, such as Kiddush, Zimmun, baby welcoming ceremonies, bar/bat mitzvah, weddings, all within halakhic parameters. It presents traditional material, such as techinot for candle lighting and for baking challah, as well as material not found elsewhere, such as an Aramaic version of Ushpizot, a welcoming ceremony for adopted children, and a Yom Haatzmaut seder. Also included are prayers for parents to recite at a child's bar/bat mitzvah and under the chuppah, as well as Shabbat zemirot and both modern and traditional Hebrew songs. All prayers are sensitively translated and transliterated throughout.

Ideal for distribution at Bar/Bat Mitzvah celebrations, weddings, brit, simchat bat and other joyous occasions.
