Description
 

When did Rosh HaShana, the anniversary of creation, become a day of judge­ment? How does Yom Kippur unite the priest’s atonement with the prophet’s repentance? What makes Kohelet, read on Sukkot, the most joyful book in the Bible? Why is the remembrance of the Pesah story so central to Jewish morality? And which does Shavuot really celebrate – the law or the land?

Bringing together Rabbi Sacks’s acclaimed introductions to the Koren Sacks Mahzorim, Ceremony & Celebration reveals the stunning interplay of biblical laws, rabbinic edicts, liturgical themes, communal rituals and profound religious meaning of each of the five central Jewish holidays.
