For anyone who wants an introduction to the fundamental aspects of Judaism, an easily understood presentation of its essence, there is no better work available then Derech Hashem: The Way of G-d by R. Moshe Chaim Luzzatto. In the two hundred and fifty years since it first appeared, this brilliant and celebrated work has gone through numerous editions and has become one of the most basic classics in Torah literature. This special excerpt, BaAvodas Boreinu: Serving Our Creator, represents the final and largest section of the book. Based on the conceptual structure developed in the earlier sections of the book, this section presents a clear and concise exposition of the practical observances of Judaism and their deeper meaning in the grand scheme of the universe. It begins with a discussion of the commandments relating to doctrine and Torah study, continuing on to prayer and the prescribed daily comportment and concluding with the ritual observance related to the calendar year and special occasions. All in all, this volume will help readers achieve a deeper appreciation of the commandments of the Torah, the golden threads woven through the fabric of Jewish life. This improved understanding will certainly satisfy their own need to relate to what they are doing, but even more important, it will imbue their Torah observances with far more spiritual value and bring them immeasurably closer to Hashem.
