Customer Reviews

Reviewed by Rabbi Simon Posner from editor of the volume

The Rav has given us the opportunity to understand and appreciate these piyutim for what they are, profound statements of Jewish philosophy, strikingly original interpretations of Scripture and Midrash, keen observations on the Jewish condition, and powerful expressions of emotional intensity.
