Called “enriching” and “profoundly moving” by Elie Wiesel, The Jewish Way is a comprehensive and inspiring presentation of Judaism as revealed through its holy days.
In thoughtful and engaging prose, Rabbi Irving Greenberg explains and interprets the origin, background, interconnections, ceremonial rituals, and religious significance of all the Jewish holidays, including Passover, Yom Kippur, Purim, Hanukkah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, and Israeli Independence Day. Giving detailed instructions for observance—the rituals, prayers, foods, and songs—he shows how celebrating the holy days of the Jewish calendar not only relives Jewish history but puts one in touch with the basic ideals of Judaism and the fundamental experience of life.
Insightful, original, and engrossing, The Jewish Way is an essential volume that should be in every Jewish home, library, and synagogue.

We have bought several copies of The Jewish Way: Living the Holidays and given them to our friends, it is one of the best resources for non-Jews to learn the 'heart' of the biblical feasts. We believe that the Body of Messiah is moving toward a reformation, more far reaching and thorough, than the one that was experienced during the time of Luther ("changing the understanding and expression of Christianity in one generation"). Jesus was not a 'Christian'.........He was/is a Jewish Man, and He is coming back for a Bride that is Jew and Gentile; One New Man...........and he is not coming back on a random day; He didn't come on just 'any day' the first time, but came during the former rain season (Passover; First Fruits; Shavuot [Pentecost])....He again is coming on His biblical appointment calendar; the latter rain (Trumpets; Yom Kippur; Feast of Tabernacles). Don't miss the 'time of His visitation', prepare your heart and begin to learn what the Savior feels about your Jewish...
I am not Jewish, but I started reading this book because I wanted to have a deeper understanding of the holidays my friends celebrate. It is so much more than a "how to" or history book. Each chapter is a profound and beautiful meditation on the deeper significance of each holiday to both the individual and the culture. I am nowhere near finished; this is definitely a book that you can't rush. After reading the chapter on Shabbat, I have started celebrating my own (single person's) Sabbath, and it has freed me up in a way that I can't explain. Such a thoughtful and lovely book.
I need to echo Abraham D. Klein's review of the printing from over a year ago. This book was clearly scanned in on an incorrect setting. Probably a screen setting? the text is not crisp as it blends in with the background. The subject matter is very very good 4 and a half stars there. This should be an easy fix Amazon! Lets do it!!
