The Second Jewish Book of WHY

Martha rated it it was ok Mar 17, I never knew Jews cared which shoe they put on first or had to wave certain types of branches 3 times in each direction alfreed recite certain prayers. The ‘Objects and Garb’ jj.kolatch offers the most useful information to the Jewish newcomer, in my opinion, and contains a few things I haven’t seen explained elsewhere. Surely people would react and say j.kolatcj a ridiculous application of this law, but such an interpretation surely is more connected with the passage, than chilling stake and cheese in the same fridge being prohibited due to a command not to boil a kid in its mothers milk!

Jun 27, Kim rated it liked it. I had a similar experience while listing to a book on the early church, much of the Catholic doctrine originated really early, and for many Catholics this is sufficient, when giving the why the church fathers adapted such doctrines and practices, it often comes down to early church authorities taking some random biblical passage completely out of context, or some bizarre and irrational line of thought that was a creative response to some issue at the time.

It’s especially helpful as a cultural perspective.
