TAPESTRY OF JEWISH TIME: A Spiritual Guide to Holidays and Life-Cycle Events by Rabbi Nina Beth Cardin.

The richly woven tapestry of Jewish observance is lovingly explained in this handsome and accessible volume. Rabbi Cardin--writing as a religious leader, friend, neighbor, wife, mother, and daughter--guides us toward a fuller understanding of Judaism. She invites us to become weavers of tradition; to knit our personal stories together with those of our ancestors and our community; and to honor, savor, and celebrate the sacred in our lives.

This important addition to the Jewish family library presents detailed explanations of each ritual, along with historical, cultural, and scriptural background. By describing traditional rites as well as contemporary innovations--the Passover seder and Miriam's Cup, baby-naming ceremonies and the practice of wrapping the newborn in a tallit--Rabbi Cardin shows how we can honor and add to our tradition.

Also included:
Examples of ethical wills
Personal anecdotes
Rabbinic stories, folk tales, and poetry
Tips on addressing the "December Dilemma"
Enhancing the volume are exquisite drawings by Ilene Winn-Lederer, a mini-prayerbook of blessings for home observance, and a 20-year calendar of Jewish holidays. Rabbi Cardin invites us to record details of our observance in "Personal Weavings"--favorite holiday recipes, family rituals, and prayers of the heart--so that the Jewish tradition may be renewed and enriched.

The Tapestry of Jewish Time reflects a profound spirituality that inspires us all to contribute to the lush weave of Jewish life.
