If you wants to know the How, When, Where, and Why of Jewish observance, these three volumes are all you need. The book is broken down by month and then, chronologically, by days of importance.
In addition to presenting Biblical and Historical reasons for just about everything, it even explains differences in tradition and methods of observance between various Jewish sects.
For someone like me, who is only vaguely aware of many of the less well-known traditions and requirements, this book is a gold mine of information.
THE BOOK OF OUR HERITAGE covers all phases of the calendar year, holidays, fast days, days of joy, and days of sorrow. It clarifies both the meaning of the law and the appropriate methods of observance. It gives Rabbinical interpretations and insights of the Sages throughout Jewish history. This is a reference that should be on the bookshelf in every Jewish home.

It is hard to imagine a more perfect set of books on Jewish Laws and Conduct than this. No wonder it has become a - must have in Jewish homes. These three volumes are suitable for everyone – from the novice to the Rabbi. Written in easy to read English and taking nothing for granted this book is really suitable to all.
The Book is organized chronologically, and is divided by month into three volumes. The level of detail is amazing. Yet the book remains readable and fresh throughout, easy to follow and comprehend. It is kept alive by providing insights into the whys of the holidays, not just how and when.
Insights come from many sources, form Talmud and Midrash. Also useful is the coverage of the numerous different holiday observances made by particular traditions and streams within the Jewish world. The book encyclopedic in scope – and you will find many tid bits of information which are hard to find elsewhere. The scope of the book is so encompassing it is really very useful and practical. I have no hesitation in giving these volumes my full recommendation.
