This luxury volume is a beautiful and moving visual record of the ancient traditions that form the cornerstones of Jewish existence. Full-page images of precious religious artifacts including the Holy Ark and the Sabbath candlesticks, holy sites, synagogues, and the Mount of Olives accompany a thought-provoking text by Rabbi Marc-Alain Ouaknin, director of the ALEPH Center for Jewish Studies in Paris. He provides answers to many fundamental questions about the traditions of Judaism, discussing not only their origins and applications today, but also religious holidays and feasts according to the Jewish calendar.
