Summary
Here is a complete guide to Jewish observance in all its richness and diversity. With a view to enhancing life through the observance of Jewish tradition, Rabbi Leo Trepp discusses each practice as part of a cycle -- the cycle of the year, and the cycle of our lives. The customs, and the reasons behind them, are presented from the standpoint of each of the major branches of Judaism -- Orthodox, Conservative, Reform and Reconstructionist
