The Jewish historical-and Social experience, extending over five millennia from biblical times to modern days, has been the source and stimulus for a wide range of fascinating customs and practices. Many of these customs derive directly from the Bible, others from postbiblical events and experiences in many different countries and periods. All are a testimonial to the creativity of the Jewish spirit and to the ongoing Jewish commitment to relive, the key incidents of Jewish history and eternally vivify the Jewish religion faith. ; In this volume, a companion to the same author's The Biblical and Historical Background of the Jewish Holy Days, the reader is provided with an in-depth analysis of customs and practices associated with all aspects of the Jewish life-cycle, with the holy days of the Jewish religious calendar, and with major tendencies in the Jewish World-outlook, such as the effort to memorialize the giving of the Torah, the destruction of the Temple, and other important past events. ; Each custom is examined both in its original form and through the various phases of its evolution in order to demonstrate its purpose and function in Jewish life: In many cases, it is revealed, the popular folkloristic under-standing of a custom is an erroneous later accretion. Always, though, it is shown how Jewish customs and practices are crucial elements of a lively and living religious consciousness.
