Meditations on the Rites of Passage from Birth to Immortality By Harold M. Schulweis (118 Pages)Publisher: UAHC Press, 2001
This book opens each section of the rites of passage with rabbinic and philosophic interpretation, folkloristic parables and insights. These point out the theological rationale and the ethical implications of the rites of passage. The task is to repair the rupture between act and purpose, between the private and the communal, between the unique and the universal and, in so doing, enable the participants to find themselves and each other in a larger Jewish life.
