There are many books that explain how to celebrate the holidays; Inviting God In shows us why we should celebrate. Using biblical references, anecdotes, and teaching tales, Rabbi David Aaron takes us through the Jewish liturgical year and explains how each major holiday—from the most joyous to the most somber—reveals God's ever present love for us.
In Inviting God In, Rabbi Aaron explores the deeper meaning of the Jewish holy days. Passover, he explains, celebrates unconditional love; Shavuot reminds us of freedom and responsibility; Rosh Hashanah is about accountability; Yom Kippur sanctifies forgiveness. Rabbi Aaron helps us to awaken our connection to the historical events that occurred on those days, and to experience the holidays as opportunities to revitalize our relationship with God.
Rabbi Aaron is an enthusiastic guide, and his fresh view of the holidays can enliven and enrich traditional observance. Inviting God In will appeal both to practicing Jews who want to reinvigorate their observance of the holidays and to secular Jews who would like to find a new way to reconnect to their Jewish roots.
