Formerly a URJ Press title.
Drawing from both traditional and contemporary Jewish sources, this book explores Jewish life-cycle passages such as birth, bar/bat mitzvah, conversion, marriage, illness, and the end of life. Using profound insights, meditations and poetry on the events and rites that frame Jewish life, Rabbi Schulweis provides insight and a greater sense of the meaning behind these rites of passage. It is precisely these life-cycle events and the rituals that accompany them that help us connect to one another and to the Image of God within ourselves and others.
-Deals with the peaks and valleys of life
-Uses prose and poetic meditations
-Draws from both traditional and contemporary Jewish sources
