The Jewish religion is one of the world’s great religions, and yet one of the least well understood.In a vast and accessible guide for the reader Rabbi Naftali Brawer presents the major themes and history of more than 5,000 years of Jewish faith of its Abrahamic origins and the foundations of Jerusalem at the time of exile, diaspora, and persecution.Ritual and practice of faith and politics, theology and history of Judaism are linked together.Brawer argues that Judaism is in balance between heaven and earthOn the one hand, it calls its adherents to transcend the material world through ritual and prayer: on the other hand, Judaism positively celebrates the joys of food, family and society.Through this apparent paradox, Brawer explores the nature and characteristics of faith – God and Man, Torah, Mitsvot, Jewish people and the Land of Israel.It also shows how ritual and practice punctuate Jewish existence, from daily prayers for rites of passage to the painting of a lifetime.
