The Book of Henry The Book of Henry is an emotionally affecting film with a few fine messages about parenthood and altruism The movie actually surprised me Perhaps it s because I had no prior knowledge about it, but the twist I don t think it s supposed to be a twist per se in the movie is reminiscent of Psycho, in that the seeming protagonist has an interesting cinematic journey.

    1. These are new blessings, supposed to be supplementary to the ones already in use by the Orthodox Union The use of Hebrew is lovely I do recommend it on the basis of creativity I find them to be a nice addition to the traditional Hebrew prayers, especially for Shabbos or the blessings over food.If you belong to the Orthodox Union or a Chabad house, you might need to talk to your Rabbi to determine the use of these prayers unless you re a little rebel

    2. This is one of the most influential books I have read It opened my mind to the revolutionary ideas in Judaism that G d language can be personalized, that prayer could be idiosyncratic I cannot believe how this permission has deepened and changed my spiritual practice I routinely and instinctively now switch to feminine language I have tremendous gratitude for this extraordinary work.

    3. An excellent book to challenge our way of looking at prayer The author writes some beautiful riffs on traditional prayers with respect and sensitivity.
