In simple and powerful language Donin presents the laws and observances for the daily life and for the major and minor holidays, as well as the guiding principles and practices for all the special occasions of life.Perfectly suited for use as a practical reference, Rabbi Donin's classic text also includes chapters on the underlying creed of Judaism, on ethics, the Torah and the Commandments, and other topics that make it an indispensable summary and rationale of the Jewish Law for our time.

Includes bibliographical references (p. 317-323) and index.

KIER8, December 4, 2008 (view all comments by KIER8)
If you are unaffiliated or Conservative/Reform but are considering adopting some aspects of a more traditional Jewish life style, then "To Be a Jew: A Guide to Jewish Observance in Contemporary Life" is a good starting point as it also provides a rationale for the laws and traditions. A modern classic since its publication in 1972, Rabbi Hayim Halevy Donin expanded on two portions of this book by writting "To Raise a Jewish Child: A Guide for Parents" and "To Pray as a Jew: A Guide to the Prayer Book and the Synagogue Service".
