Format: Paperback
Although this book is primarily Askenazi it is a comprehensive but manageable introduction to Jewish living. I've used this book with people who wish to return to Judaism and they have found it invaluble. Along with 'How to Pray as a Jew' by Rabbi Donin this has to be a standard text for the modern Jewish home where there is little possible access to classical texts. This book is also useful in the class room when answering questions about Judaism before going onto further research. Certainly teachers in Lincolnshire, England, have found this book useful when teaching GCSE and A level Judaism.

Format: Paperback
This book is exactly what its title proclaims-a very detailed guide to living as a Jew. I did not find it as reader friendly as "Living Judaism". After reading that title, though, I returned to this book and everything was clearer. I highly recommend it as an excellent addition to any library. It stands on its own merits and is second to none.

Format: Paperback
The best book around on Jewish observance. Written from a very frum perspective, which can be slightly intimidating. Donin has no time for lapses in observance! If this is an area you want to know about, buy this book, because you will not regret it. Mazel Tov!

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on 8 Sept. 1997
Format: Paperback
This book,by Hayim Ha-Levy Donin, was an in-depth and thorough account about what it meant to be Jewish, the emotional ties its people have to the faith, and so forth. Donin helped to open a once
impregnable barrier between two seemingly clashing worlds. An excellent offering.

Format: Paperback
It's hard to find a book that does everything what you want, there always tends to be an aspect missing. This book tells you everything you would need to know - its a perfect for a learning convert. My teenage daughter was happy to read it too - it's a bit like a mini encyclopaedia on all things Jewish. We are Jews but not bought up Jewish so it's a huge learning curve - this book pretty much has a little bit of everything so allows one to become more knowledgable and ready to seek the next level.
