The Jewish Holy Days in Chasidic Philosophy
Much of Jewish life, observance, and customs are structured around the Jewish holy days, which consecrate not only something of the past but, also, something that is eternally recurring. The Jewish Holy Days in Chasidic Philosophy by Noson Gurary demonstrates the understanding of the unique and eternal ideas that each Jewish holiday possesses. Chasidic thought has its own particular perspective on Judaism, and on the holidays in particular. This scholarly volume explores the Jewish holy days through Chasidic philosophy, shedding light on customs, rituals, and spiritual ideas.
