From Havdalah

Nevarech - unique among benchers, not just for the dazzling beauty of its pages, but most importantly for its use of photographs -- present day and historical -- in bringing to life the meaning of text.

Nevarech - a bencher created by Israel Observer Publications, its ambitious goal is to revitalize the user's visual grasp of tefilah (prayer) and to enrich kavanah -- conscious devotion to the meaning of the prayer.

Nevarech - generically a bircon or bencher, its fully traditional text includes Bircat Hamazon (Grace After Meals), Brachot Achronot and Sheva Brachot, together with Kiddush, zmirot and other Shabbat texts through to Havdalah, the collection customarily given as a gift to guests at weddings and Bar and Bat Mitzvahs.

Nevarech - a bencher that invests every table with the beauty of Judaism.

Nevarech - anyone concerned to maintain a central role for Judaism in contemporary life must become familiar with this publication.

Nevarech - a bencher that embodies living Judaism at its best, poised to re-excite you about prayer.

Nevarech - with a new, thoughtful, fully traditional English translation that makes faithful use of perushim (interpretations) from chazal.

Never has traditional Jewish prayer been made so vivid.

Never before has a prayer book as modest in kind as a bencher moved readers to tears, and on the next page caused them to smile with joy.

Benchers have in recent years fast evolved into a fascinating genre in themselves. Nevarech takes this genre leaps ahead, and turns it into a tool with remarkable educational and spiritual potential. Nevarech shows the way not just for benchers, but also for other kinds of prayer books.

"...a most unusual and delightful grace-after-meals booklet... (Nevarech) is beautifully illustrated with about 40 photographs that interpret a bold, refreshing text... A striking translation forces us to look at the traditional words in a new light." From the Jerusalem Post (May 20, 1999)
