Living a Jewish Life, Updated and Revised Edition: Jewish Traditions, Customs, and Values for Today's Families

Book Overview
More and more, people are exploring Judaism -- not just as a contemplative or abstract system of thought, but as a blueprint for living fully and honorably. Living a Jewish Life is a sensitive and comprehensive introduction that reveals the timeless nature of Jewish tradition, rich with history and relevant in the modern world. Living a Jewish Life explains the traditions and beliefs of Judaism in the context of real life. It explores the spectrum of liberal Jewish thought, from Conservative to Reconstructionist to Reform, as well as unaffiliated, new age, and secular. Celebrating the diversity of Jewish beliefs, this guide provides information on how readers can choose to incorporate Judaism into their lives. Anita Diamant is a prize-winning journalist whose previous books include The New Jewish Wedding and The New Jewish Baby Book. An excellent first reader for the young family taking its first steps into living their Jewishness. -Rabbi Harold Kushner, author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People
