Fiche détaillée de "The Everything Judaism Book: A Complete Primer to the Jewish Faith-From Holidays and Rituals to Traditions and Culture"

Résumé
Judaism has grown and changed over the course of four millennia -- yet many customs, laws, and traditions have remained exactly the same over that time. The Everything "RM" Judaism Book sorts through the often complex practices and culture of Judaism in this easy-to-read, inclusive treatment. Among the questions discussed:

-- How do Jews study the Torah (the five books of Moses)?

-- What is the significance of kashrut (kosher laws)?

-- Why is there a Jewish calendar?

-- What are the differences between the different branches of Judaism (Reform, Conservative, Orthodox, et. al.)?

-- What do the mezuzah, the prayer shawl, the yarmulke, and the menorah symbolize?

-- How are the holidays and festivals observed?
