Jewish life is regulated by two calendars, the civil and the Jewish, each with its own dates and distinctive ryhthms. This volume, Gates of the Seasons: A Guide to the Jewish Year, is designed to help Jews feel more clearly the flow of Jewish time. Gates of the Seasons is a comprehensive survey of the home-based and synagogue-based mitzvot for all the sacred days, both ancient and modern, which make up the cyle of the Jewish year. Also included are brief essays on such subjects as the Jewish calendar, the liturgy of the festivals, and the special Torah and Haftarah readings. The book includes extensive notes, bibliography, glossary and an index.
