Exploring Jewish Tradition
Organized into ten chapters, hundreds of transliterated terms are linked together in a friendly narrative that leads the readers step-by-step through the vocabulary and concepts of Jewish tradition.
The text includes chapters on the interpretation and significance of the word 'Torah,' the foundation of all Jewish knowledge: the synagogue and its artifacts: prayer and Jewish liturgy: the Jewish (lunar/solar) calendar: the Sabbath: the high holy days: the pilgrimage festivals: the minor festivals: the Jewish life cycle: and special words and phrases that are used in everyday Jewish life.
Exploring Jewish Tradition is a guidebook not only for the traditional Jew but for the uncertain newcomer, the inquisitive non-Jew, or anyone else who has ever wondered about the difference between Torah and Talmud, Kiddush and Kaddish, Shabbat and Shevat, or mezuzah and mazal.
