This is an AWESOME book!

The title says it all! Portraits of Prayer! The author describes what Tefillah is, and how important it actually is. He vividly describes Tefillah, and the potency of it, with amazing stories and Divrei Torah. And it's extremely well written!!
It certainly took my Tefillah to a whole new level!


I finished the first book, and already bought the second one, which continues on from where he left off. (First book is the beginning of Davening till Yishtabach, Second is Birchas Krias Shema till end of Davening).

I love this book, and I bought Volume 2 as soon as it came out last year. I have recommended it to a few people, all who enjoy it a lot. I know a few rebbeim who use it for the stories in it, even not related to the davening part.

Met the author once. He asked me to bring a copy to Rabbi Berkovits, who he apparently used to meet to learn bchavrusah at a bus stop on Meah Shearim, for seven minutes each day. (When he transferred between buses.)

Heavenwords by Rabbi Eliezer Niehaus is a similar sefer.
Full disclosure: I worked on it, but I don't get any money for copies purchased.

And did you? What did Rabbi Berkovits say about it?

What do you think the Rav would say about it? "Of course I remember him! Wow... such a nice sefer..."
