Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gates of Mitzvah, also known as Shaarei Mitzvah, is a comprehensive guide to Jewish observance throughout the cycle of life. Included in this volume are sections on birth, childhood, education, marriage, the Jewish home, death and mourning, complete notes and a wide selection of consise essays on related topics. In keeping with the traditional Jewish emphasis on deed rather than creed as the primary expression of religious life, Gates of Mitzvah encourages the performance of specific mitzvot (sanctifying acts) as the key to Jewish survival. Gates of Mitzvah was written to help modern Jews make responses, to give their lives Jewish depth and character. While honoring the Reform Jewish principle of individual choice, it suggests that Jewish survival requires commitment to come meangingful level of Jewish performance, and that such commitment can bring great joy to home and family.

Synopsis:

This comprehensive guide to Jewish observance throughout the life cycle is the best introduction to Reform Jewish practice available.
