Called “enriching” and “profoundly moving” by Elie Wiesel, The Jewish Way is a comprehensive and inspiring presentation of Judaism as revealed through its holy days.

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.

About the Author:

Rabbi Irving Greenberg is the Founding President of CLAL—The National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, an organization dedicated to the renewal of clal Yisrael—the unity and totality of the Jewish people. He has been a pioneer in leadership education and a leading figure in intra-Jewish dialogue and the development of pluralism. An Orthodox rabbi and Harvard Ph.D., Rabbi Greenberg has been a seminal thinker in confronting the Holocaust as an historical transforming event and Israel as the Jewish assumption of power and the beginning of a third era in Jewish history. Rabbi Greenberg has published articles and monographs on Jewish thought and religion, and is the subject of a book, Living in the Image of God: Jewish Teachings to Perfect the World (Conversations with Rabbi Irving Greenberg as Conducted by Shalom Freedman), published by Jason Aronson Inc. He is currently President of CHAverIM Kol Yisrael/Jewish Life Network, a Michael and Judy Steinhardt Foundation, which develops new institutions and projects in religion, education, and culture to strengthen the inner life of American Jewry.

From Library Journal:

The diverse, nondelineated material in this book precludes its easy use as a handbook, distinguishing it from such works as Leo Trepp's traditional Complete Book of Jewish Observance ( LJ 10/15/86) or Arthur Waskow's innovative Seasons of Our Joy (Summit Bks., 1986) . The chapters on each major and minor holiday are crammed with facts, anecdotes, and personal reflections; the Hassidic and Kabbalistic tales contain moral messages that reinforce Greenberg's perspective. Indeed, Greenberg appears to use the holidays as a vehicle for expressing his own philosophy of Judaism. There are meaningful interpretations, but they can best be appreciated by readers with a basic understanding of Jewish principles. Carol R. Glatt, Northeastern Hosp . of Philadelphia
