Beauty is seldom associated with the performance of religious obligations, which are more often viewed as duties. This book shows, however, that artistry is integral to the form and celebration of Jewish holidays, lifecycles and liturgy. Furthermore, as we probe their aesthetic nature, we discover profound dimensions of moral meaning and ethical guidance. An insightful rabbi, teacher and performer, Andrew Vogel Ettin guides the reader through this exploration. Drawing on his congregational experience along with knowledgeable love of the arts and literature, he illuminates the rich artistry within the words and practices of Jewish ceremonies and prayers. Even more, he unfolds deep ethical wisdom in these spiritual practices. Writing from a contemporary perspective yet informed as well by mystical and Hassidic teachings, Ettin shows the sense of values embodied but often overlooked in familiar passages, ancient rituals and modern innovations.
