Creative liturgy has become a mainstay of modern Jewish worship, both in the synagogue and in our private moments of joy and sorrow. This Joyous Soul provides a resounding yet contemporary voice that weaves new inspiration into traditional prayer. Structured to reflect the morning service found within the Reform siddur, Mishkan T’filah, this new collection invites a deeply personal prayer experience that will strengthen our connection to Jewish tradition and inspire us to make the prayers in the Reform siddur our own.

Like its predecessor, This Grateful Heart, this volume opens a door into the transformative power of prayer by breathing new life into the age-old conviction that our words have the power to impact the world. Whether for the individual or as a supplemental resource for the congregation, this anthology encourages us to explore the siddur with fresh eyes as we further our own personal practice of spiritual alchemy.
