    JUDAISM FOR THE RITE REASONS: Concepts & Customs, Sources & Reasons - Illustrated
    out of print by Shmuel Pinchas Gelbard

    What is a Mezuza? What is in it, why is it set diagonally on the doorpost, and why do we kiss it?

    When was the first Siddur written, and who was the author?

    Why does a curtain, the Parochet, hang in front of the Holy Ark?

    Who chooses the name of a newborn baby, the mother or the father, and why?

    You will find the answers to these and hundreds of other questions from every aspect of Jewish religious life in Judaism for the Rite Reasons.

    The book deals with basic concepts and customs, from every community, covering the whole year. There are 64 pages of full-color illustrations showing Judaism in action.

    If you want to know what something looks like -- the Lulav, the Etrog or Citron, a spinning top for Chanukah, the Holy Ark or a weding canopy, the Chupa -- you can study the dozens of fascinating photos that supplement and illustrate the text.
