Forty contributors from six countries and three continents interpret one of Judaism's favorite prayers--and the difficulty of naming the unnameable. One of the oldest and most beloved prayers--known even to Jews who rarely attend synagogue--is Avinu Malkenu ("Our Father, Our King"), a liturgical staple for the entire High Holy Day period. "Our Father, Our King" has resonance also for Christians, whose Lord's Prayer begins "Our Father." Despite its popularity, however, Avinu Malkenu causes great debate because of the difficulties in thinking of God as father and king. Americans no longer relate positively to images of royalty; victims of parental abuse note the problem of assuming a benevolent father; and feminists have long objected to masculine language for God. These issues are just the tip of a larger linguistic and spiritual "iceberg": How do we name God altogether, without recourse to imagery that defies belief? A detailed study of a particular prayer, and a thoughtful analysis of the age-old but altogether modern problem of naming God, it is intended for people who worship but have questions about God. It features some forty contributors, men and women from all Jewish denominations and from around the world--scholars, rabbis, artists and thinkers from Canada, France, Israel, the Netherlands, UK and US, who contribute fascinating thought-pieces on a critical question for religious consciousness today.

يبدأ المؤلف و يقول كان يوما من أيام الخريف صاخبة الرياح من عام 1939 ،وفى ذلك اليوم ، وفى الشوارع الواقعة خارج العمارة السكينة ، كانت أوراق الأشجار المتساقطة تدور في خضم الدوامات الهوائية الصغيرة ، و تتهاوى مع كل منها حياتها ، كان شعورا طيبا أن أكون داخل البيت . مستشعرا الأمان و الدف بينما أمى تعد العشاء فى حجرة مجاورة ولم يكن في شقتنا أطفال أكبر سناً يتصيدون الأخطاء بلا داع
