Worship of the HeartRabbi Joseph B. SoloveitchikPrayerKtav2003
The biblical command to serve God "with all your heart" is interpreted by Jewish tradition to refer to prayer. The Rav explores the crucial interface between living religious experience and halakhic norms --the hallmark of his work. He analyzes the Amidah, the Shema, and other biblical and liturgical texts, and also considers the tension between human dependence and exaltation, the ethical and the aesthetic, the presence and absence of God, and the yearning for stability and the desire for change.
