144 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. Very good condition. JUDAISM. In this joyous book, the Jewish festivals are presented with a wholly original approach. Chaim Raphael takes us through the seasonal cycle of the major Jewish celebrations, including the Pilgrim Festivals (Pesach, Shavuot, Sukkot), the Days of Awe (Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur), the Patriotic Memories (Chanukah, Purim, Tisha B'Av), and the eight Minor Celebrations. Raphael's rich history and vivid descriptions expand our understanding of the festivals by showing us that although these feasts and fasts are firmly grounded in the Bible and tradition, these ancient rituals have been constantly transmuted by history, personal experience, and the influence of time and change on the Jewish people. Includes an Index.
