Avodah: Ancient Poems for Yom Kippur - Penn State Library of Jewish Literature

Avodah is the first major translation of one of the most important genres of the lost literature of the ancient synagogue. Piyyut literature can teach us much about how ancient Jews understood sacrifice, sacred space, and sin. The poems are also a rich source for retrieving myths and symbols not found in the conventional Rabbinic sources.
