This book takes us back to those thrilling days at Sinai, as we watched Moses disappear up the mountainside and return with the Divine invitation to accept the Torah -- to which we answered, ?We will do and we will hear!?
It leads us through centuries of history and tradition, custom and ritual, teachers and students, challenge and triumph.
Sefiras HaOmer -- the days of counting toward the climactic event; Lag B?Omer -- the day of respite from tragedy, of a suspended sunset, and delirious joy; Shavuos re-enacted, generation after generation. It?s all here.
This book is filled with insights that will shed light on familiar observances. And its stories are a revelation in themselves -- including the one that brought a Jew back to his roots during the Gulf War.
Special features of this volume are the Book of Ruth, with the famous ArtScroll translation and marginal notes, and an Overview that sheds light on the deeper perspectives of the festival and what it represents.
This is a book that is valuable and enlightening, that adds depth to the day when our Torah was given.
