Jewish traditions and customs are among the most interesting and multifarious areas of Jewish studies as they reach out to many other disciplines such as history, sociology, education, law, political science, cultural studies and art history. The book describes the life of a practicing Jew and the rituals that accompany it, customs typical for everyday life (such as attending services in the synagogue and kashruth) as well as holidays and important days. This illustrated book presents interesting information to both scholarly and lay readers interested in Jewish culture. Second, revised edition.
