Why does the bridegroom break a glass at a Jewish wedding ceremony? Why do Israelis eat donuts on the holiday of Chanukah? Why does Jewish law forbid hunting? In The Jewish Book of Why Rabbi Alfred J. Kolatch treats these and hundreds of other important questions about Jewish life and practice. The answers are concise, straightforward and unbiased. Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform views are presented objectively, in a manner designed to explain the how and why of various practices.
