Item description for The Jewish Home: A Guide to the Jewish Holidays and Life Cycles by Daniel B. Syme...

The Jewish Home explains many of the ?whys? of major Jewish holidays and life-cycle events. The birth of a child, the weeding ceremony, b?nei mitzvah, and Shabbat are only a few of the topics discussed in this work. Readers are provided with Jewish rituals and practices, their symbolism, and their historical and cultural roots. Rabbi Daniel Syme has revised this edition to reflect the changes in Reform Judaism and Jewish life that have occurred since its first publication 15 years ago. He presents clear explanations of traditional and contemporary practices in an easy-to-follow question-and-answer format.

FANTASTIC  Aug 23, 2007
I AM GOING TO ASK A REFORM RABBI TO USE IT FOR A INTRODUCTION TO JUDAISM CLASS. IT COVERS BLESSINGS REASONS FOR HOLIDAYS AND LIFE EVENTS TELLS YOU SO MANY HELPFUL THINGS WITHOUT USEING A HEAVY HAND.
 
A great read  Jan 9, 2007
this is a very informative book on a lot of traditions in the jewish culture. Along with some great hisorical information, you also get prayers and what rituals are done by which sects of jewish people today. A more contemporary look at the Jewish home life. For me a person that is a Jew-by-choice I found this a very useful book.
 
perfect book!  Jan 14, 2004
Great book for anyone who wants to know the 'why' or 'how' of a Jewish home. I'm not at all religious, but I did want to know what to do when. This book is perfect for thaT.
 
Excellent Quick Resource  Nov 10, 2003
This book is like a "cliff notes" for the jewish home. It includes the appropriate prayers for hanging the mezuzah, shabbot etc... and it does a nice job of explaining the holidays and pointing out the difference b/w reform and conservative jewish observance. I have read this book over and over again and will use it for years to come. I plan to read the stories to my children before each holiday.
 
Super book - very helpful for the beginner.  Aug 20, 2002
Excellent book for the family looking for ways into observing Judaism in the home.
