This definitive guide for Reform Jewish practice leads the reader to an
understanding of the whole of Jewish life -- from blessing to b'nei
mitzvah, Havdalah to haftarah, and tikkun olam to Tikkun Leil Shavuot.
The revised edition features an index, cross-references to Mishkan T'filah,
and new sections exploring the impact of changes in the movement and
the world at large over the last decade, including same-sex marriage,
conversion, bioethics, and justification of war. Jewish Living
is an ideal gift for b'nei mitzvah, confirmation, and graduation, and
deserves pride of place on the bookshelf of every Reform Jewish library,
classroom, office, and home.
This travel edition of The Torah: A Modern Commentary includes the full text of the revised edition in a size that is easy to transport. The reinforced binding and smaller size makes it useful for students and ideal for traveling.
New in 2005, this Revised Edition brings contemporary values and a fresh vibrancy to the 1981 Plaut edition, North America's longtime most popular Torah commentary.
