Who by Fire, Who By Water: Un-tanek tokef
|Who by Fire, Who By Water: Un-tanek tokef|
Edited by Rabbi Lawrence A. Hoffman PhD
Over forty contributors who span three continents and all major Jewish denominations examine Un’taneh Tokef’s theology, authorship, and poetry through a set of lively commentaries. Men and women, scholars and rabbis, artists and poets trace the history of Un’taneh Tokef and connect the prayer to its biblical and rabbinic roots. They wrestle with the personal and community impact of its deeply moving imagery, probe its haunting message of human mortality, and reflect on its call for sanctity, transformation and renewal.
