"An excellent practical introduction to the festivals...succeeds
brilliantly in bringing fresh life to our thoughts about the
Jewish year." -- Jewish Chronicle
In thoughtful and engaging prose, Rabbi Irving Greenberg explains
and interprets the origin, background, interconnections, ceremonial
rituals, and religious significance of all the Jewish holidays,
including Passover, Yom Kippur, Purim, Hanukkah, Holocaust
Remembrance Day and Israeli Independence Day. Giving detailed
instructions for observance - the rituals, prayers, foods, and
songs - he shows how celebrating the holy days of the Jewish
calendar not only relives Jewish history but puts one in touch with
the basic ideals of Judaism and the fundamental experience of life.
Insightful, original, and engrossing, The Jewish Way is an essential
volume that should be in every Jewish home, library, and synagogue.
"An important book, one that should be read, discussed, critiqued,
and then read over again." -- The Jewish Review
