About this Book
My Essence Is Tefillah is an adaptation of the highly popular, two-volume sefer, Ani Tefillah, written by Rav Binyamin Zev Shisha. This beautiful sefer focuses on the importance of tefillah and kedushas beis haknesses in an extremely comprehensive manner. Chock-full of gems from the ba'alei mussar and other Torah sources, both Chassidishe and Litvishe, the book also includes hundreds of stories of tzaddikim to illustrate various concepts.
Readers will find a detailed discussion of the morning preparations for tefillah, followed by an examination of the different parts of the tefillos themselves and the significance of the shul, the place that is designated for davening. Other chapters discuss tefillah b'kavanah in depth; the great advantages of tefillah b'tzibbur; the power of "amen"; and much more.
Based on the enthusiastic feedback garnered by the Hebrew and Yiddish editions of this book, our hope is that My Essence Is Tefillah will serve as an invaluable guide to all those who wish to grow in their avodas hatefillah and pour out their hearts before Hashem with meaning and passion.
