Alden Solovy spreads the joy of prayer. A poet and liturgist, his work challenges the boundaries between poetry, meditation, personal growth and prayer. His work is widely anthologized. His fourth solo book —  This Joyous Soul: A New Voice for Ancient Yearnings — was recently published by the Central Conference of American Rabbis. He also teaches prayer, writing as a spiritual practice and personal connection with t’fillah, and was a recent ELItalk fellow where he spoke about “Falling in Love with Prayer.” Explore Alden’s work here.
