Description
   Abbreviated year round prayerbook for Orthodox Jewish youth. The author decries the state of Jewish youth in El Paso, who do not attend services or socialize instead of praying as they do not understand the language. The author attempts to correct the situation with this work, primarily in English with several Hebrew phrases.
