This is a wonderful handbook for personal practice. I'm not Jewish and am unlikely to convert, but the book is more about the meaning and reasons behind Jewish practices. As such, it has informed my own religious practice and certainly changed my point of view concerning all aspects of life. This book has helped me become more mindful in all aspects of daily living. Pretty good, huh?!

This is a good spiritual guide for those of us who do not believe in the philosophy of following commandments and rituals simply because they are commandments and rituals that have been practiced for the past 2,000 years. Those of us who need to understand the spiritual meaning of what we practice is who this book is for.

If any book better documents the increasingly halachic turn of the liberal Jewish movements in Norht America, I would be hard pressed to find one. The editors, who also have written articles in the text, do an excellant job of providing, perhaps for the first time in a few decades, a guide to daily Jewish religious practice from a liberal, or more accurately, Reconstructionist, point of view. They include solid use of classical Jewish sources and a good basic bibliography with each section.
They discuss all the most important basic subjects, such as daily prayer, the rituals of laying on tallis, kippah and tefillin, daily Torah study, the Jewish dietary laws, use of the Ritual bath and the celebration of Shabbat. Equally critically, they talk about the psychology involved in these ritual observances, and their benefits from a spiritual point of view.
For anyone new to Jewish religious practice, this book is the place to start.
However, as with many books of this type, there is no effort made to show how the various practices so effectively described, fit into a more complete whole. While the authors and editors make repeated references to Jewish mysticism here and there, there is no even brief description of what it is, or how Jewish ritual serves as the foundation for Jewish mysticism. In addition, the authors stress psycological/spiritual benefits to Jewish practice, when there are those among us who have experienced many practical gains as well.
In order to find the connection between these practices and Judaism and its mysticism as a totality, the reader should combine reading the above work, with this writer's own critical description of Jewish mysticism, or Kabbalah, entitled "Jewish History and Divine Providence: Theodicy and the Oddyssey," available for purchase here on Amazon. This work, the only progressive, critical discussion of Jewish mysticism in English, unifies "The Rituals and Practices of a Jewish Life" with their most potent rationale, and in history as well.

This book has 1-2 paragraph stories from many Jews on why they resumed a particular ritual practice. I enjoyed hearing those and could relate to many. The book also explains how to perform the rituals.
