Holy days and hol­i­days pro­vide the peak expe­ri­ences of Jew­ish life. These moments speak deeply to the Jew­ish soul and ani­mate Judais­m’s cul­ture. They encour­age Jews to par­tic­i­pate in their shared his­tor­i­cal expe­ri­ence, which reflects their covenan­tal rela­tion­ship with God, and artic­u­late Jew­ish val­ues that have allowed for the sur­vival of the Jew­ish peo­ple. But what can they mean to Chris­tians seek­ing to under­stand their own faith? In this spe­cial book, Rab­bis Olitzky and Jud­son guide you through the major Jew­ish hol­i­days and what they mean for the Jew­ish peo­ple. Exam­in­ing obser­vance in both home and syn­a­gogue – and in all Jew­ish denom­i­na­tions – this easy-to-use guide to the Jew­ish hol­i­days will be a valu­able resource for your own under­stand­ing of Jew­ish sacred time through­out the year.
