Ceremony and Celebration

When did Rosh HaShana, the anniversary of creation, become a day of judgment? How does Yom Kippur unite the priests atonement with the prophets repentance? What makes Kohelet, read on Sukkot, the most joyful book in the Bible? Why is the remembrance of the Passover story so central to Jewish morality? And which does Shavuot really celebrate the law or the land? Rabbi Jonathan Sacks's Ceremony & Celebration reveals the stunning interplay of biblical laws, rabbinic edicts, liturgical themes, communal rituals and profound religious meaning of each of the five central Jewish holidays.
