His work has appeared in such publications as The Journal of Chemical Physics, Soundwaves, Byte, PC Tech Journal, and The Celator. The Synagogue Survival Kit, by Jordan Lee Wagner, is published by Rowman & Littlefield. Jordan Lee Wagner is also the author of "Siddur Ba-Eir Hei-Teiv - The Transliterated Siddur". This enables anyone to follow a traditional service and sing along. One Creepy Street - Annica and the Spider Activity Book.

Jordan Lee Wagner's love for the Siddur, Jewish prayerbook, radiates from almost every page. While people may go to most any church and feel perfectly at home, the Synagogue is not as well known. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wonders why Jewish prayer services are as they are. Forget gold - worth many times its weight in platinum. Wagner gives his readers an opportunity to understand and even participate in the worship services at the heart of Judaism. This book is highly readable and worth the time if you or anyone you know is going to Synagogue.

There is so much lore packed into this little book, it's hard to know where to begin. How about starting with the endnotes -- which I usually ignore -- but in this case, contain enough information for another book, or at least a greatly expanded volume. The author properly left them as endnotes to keep the focus exactly where it belongs, on the primary text material. I would read the entire chapter, then read the endnotes on their own, going back to the text if need be.

This book will give you a much greater understanding of the services, how they came to be and the underlying secrets in their construction. My only complaint is that the book is 20 years old and things can change a lot in 20 years. It is written from an Orthodox standpoint, and while it is useful to Reform and Conservative Jews as well, the information about what's in or not in those services is not necessarily up to date. This is a very minor issue. The important, basic information is timeless and relevant to all branches of the family and will continue to be so.

Whether you are a new Jew by Choice or a Jew by birth returning after a time away, this book is invaluable. I would not be without it in my library of Judaica. Many thanks to Jordan Lee Wagner for creating it! My understanding of the faith, the community, and even of Hebrew, took a giant leap forward.

This is THE Go To manual for understanding the synagogue. Have used it for years. Wish there were an update for the newer siddurim. Recommend to all adult students.
  • INwhite
An excellent, in depth exposition on Jewish prayer and what a newbie can expect at synagogue service. Written to take the reader from zero knowledge to a functional level of comfort with the prayer service. I can not recommend this book highly enough. A hearty Yasher Koach to Mr. Wagner on what he has accomplished with this work. Along with a Tanakh and a siddur, there are three books that every convert and Baal Teshuvah and should have on their shelves, this one, "Essential Judaism" by George Robinson, and "Choosing a Jewish Life" by Anita Diamant. With the knowledge garnered from these books one can begin to comfortably fit into a Jewish life.
