Publishers Weekly - Publisher's WeeklyA comprehensive guide to the Jewish holidays. (Sept.)
Library JournalThe diverse, nondelineated material in this book precludes its easy use as a handbook, distinguishing it from such works as Leo Trepp's traditional Complete Book of Jewish Observance ( LJ 10/15/86) or Arthur Waskow's innovative Seasons of Our Joy (Summit Bks., 1986) . The chapters on each major and minor holiday are crammed with facts, anecdotes, and personal reflections; the Hassidic and Kabbalistic tales contain moral messages that reinforce Greenberg's perspective. Indeed, Greenberg appears to use the holidays as a vehicle for expressing his own philosophy of Judaism. There are meaningful interpretations, but they can best be appreciated by readers with a basic understanding of Jewish principles. Carol R. Glatt, Northeastern Hosp . of Philadelphia
Cynthia Ozick"The Jewish Way confirms and makes even more widely accessible what Rabbi Greenberg's enchanted following already knows: That he is one of the great teachers of our generation."
Elie Wiesel"Perceptive, enriching, profoundly moving—this volume by Irving Greenberg will further inspire his many followers who wish to understand and receive the joy and anguish of the Jewish tradition."
