To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven…” This quotation from Ecclesiastics fittingly opens one of the chapters in this book about how the Jewish people celebrate and give meaning to life’s turning points: birth, puberty, marriage and death. The author explains these rites of passage and tells how they offer continuity to generations past and future, and link the participants to the Jewish people.
