This Precious Life: A Reading of New Prayer Poetry by Liturgist Alden Solovy

Hosted By: Congregation Beth Israel of San Diego

Join us for an intimate session with liturgist Alden Solovy, who will read from and answer questions about his new book This Precious Life: Encountering the Divine with Poetry and Prayer. A friend and frequent scholar at Beth Israel, Alden will share inside stories of his newest work.

In This Precious Life, Alden presents prayers, poetry, and meditations inspired by encounters with God. The first part draws from divine moments in our sacred texts, mostly the Torah but also the Prophets and the Writings. Using a contemporary voice, Solovy imagines these holy moments as experienced by our biblical ancestors so we can reclaim them as our own. The second part focuses on sacred moments in our daily lives, connections with the Divine that occur simply because we are human beings created in God’s image. Equally suited to individual reflection and group prayer, the book completes a trilogy with This Grateful Heart and This Joyous Soul.
