About the book Rendezvous with God
A highly original holiday book, Rendezvous with God will make you see the holidays as you have never seen them before. In the words of R. Yitz Greenberg:
'In this wondrous book, Nathan Laufer gives us a stunningly fresh reading of the biblical holidays, illustrating how they celebrate the seven revelations of the Divine Presence during the first year of the marriage of God and Israel. A remarkable tour de force, Rendezvous with God weaves together thousands of biblical rituals with later rabbinic ordinances and popular holiday customs into a seamless whole, inseparably uniting Judaism's ethical and ritual dimensions. The book is so rich, it will provide understanding and pleasure to every kind of reader - from the wise, informed expert to the unlearned lay reader.
