The Musaf prayer is considered a highlight of the Shabbos davening, yet its significance is underappreciated, and the depth of meaning that lies in and between its lines, on even a simple p’shat level, is easily overlooked.

This familiar Shabbos Shemoneh Esreh abounds with a host of intriguing questions, which are explored by Rav Elchanan Adler in this erudite work. Geared toward the scholar and layperson alike, this sefer is a boon for anyone interested in gaining greater understanding and appreciation for the Musaf prayer.

Also included is a brief overview of the Korban Musaf and its relationship to the Musaf prayer.


“This sefer is sweet and utterly delightful, its priceless insights organized with clarity, in good taste, and with sophisticated appeal.”

Rav Asher Weiss, Machon Minchas Osher L’torah V’horaah, Yerushalayim



“I perused the sefer that you honored me with; it is a vessel containing blessing, full and overflowing…”

Rav Avigdor Nebenzahl, Chief Rabbi of the Old City of Yerushalayim
