Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 158023061X, Paperback)

Sacred Intentions, as its subtitle explains, offers "daily inspiration to strengthen the spirit, based on Jewish wisdom." Rabbis Kerry M. Olitzky and Lori Forman, both experts on Jewish spirituality, collaborated to create this pocket-size devotional companion. For each day of the year, Sacred Intentions provides a quotation from Scripture, Midrash, or other holy texts, or from contemporary writers such as Rabbi Lawrence Kushner ("The wilderness is not just a desert through which we wandered for forty years. It is a way of being. A place that demands being open to the flow of life around you.") and Rabbi Judith Abrams ("You don't want to change, yet at the same time you don't want to stay the same. So how does Judaism suggest you begin changing without toppling the construct of your existence? Change one tiny thing at a time.") Brief commentaries on each quotation will help readers bring to bear the wisdom of this devotional on every hour of their days. Sacred Intentions is well-designed, straightforward, and accessible. For many, spending time with this book will also be habit-forming. And what a habit--learning to see blessings everywhere we look.
