Jewish Living: A Guide to Contemporary Reform Practice (Revised Edition)
This definitive guide for Reform Jewish practice leads the reader to an understanding of the whole of Jewish life -- from blessing to b'nei mitzvah, Havdalah to haftarah, and tikkun olam to Tikkun Leil Shavuot. The revised edition features an index, cross-references to Mishkan T'filah, and new sections exploring the impact of changes in the movement and the world at large over the last decade, including same-sex marriage, conversion, bioethics, and justification of war. Jewish Living is an ideal gift for b'nei mitzvah, confirmation, and graduation, and deserves pride of place on the bookshelf of every Reform Jewish library, classroom, office, and home.
This revised edition reflects the changes in Jewish life and ritual since it was first published in 1988.
The Jewish Home explains many of the "whys" of major Jewish holidays and lifecycle events. The birth of a child, wedding ceremony, b'nei mitzvah and Shabbat are only a few of the topics discussed in Daniel Syme's landmark guide.
Readers learn about Jewish rituals and practice, their symbolism, and their historical and cultural roots in an easy-to-follow question and answer format.
Since 1983, this book has been the standard teaching tool for beginning "Introduction to Judaism" classes in Reform synagogues and institutions throughout North America. This revised edition has been updated and expanded to include new material in each chapter. New articles, essays, liturgical writings, and text sources reflect recent developments in the political situation in Israel, the creation of alternative liturgies and life-cycle celebrations, and the Reform movement's growing emphasis on sacred texts and spirituality.
