Teach American Jewish practice in your school using
the book you helped create!

Life-cycle ceremonies are the most essential expressions of our Jewish community. For contemporary American Jews they are also among the most creative--and the most diverse--expressions of Jewish life. In order to best represent the wide and interesting variety of what we do and how we do it, the authors of The Book of the Jewish Life and the URJ Press felt that the liberal Jewish community should have a say in editing this book. In an unprecedented experiment, the basic manuscript of The Book of the Jewish Life was sent to 7,000 educators, rabbis, cantors, and congregational leaders--the core of the liberal movement today--along with a questionnaire asking for comments, critiques, and emendations. Based on your feedback, the new Book of the Jewish Life is the first text on the Jewish life we actually live today. Illustrated in full color and geared toward intermediate grades, each chapter relates a stage or landmark of life, its traditional practices, and its modern observance. Also included are glossaries of Hebrew terms, blessings, and stories to bring our celebrations to life.

Topics include: Birth * Jewish Education * Adulthood * Living a Jewish Life * Conversion * Marriage * Death.
