About this product
- DescriptionRabbi Shmuel Herzfeld remembers the Yom Kippur of his childhood surrounded by the mournful cries of his fellow worshippers, so it is t surprising that he grew up with an image of Yom Kippur as a purely solemn day. Yet his book emphasises a different aspect of Yom Kippur, the most important holiday of the Jewish faith: it is t a day of mourning, but a day of celebrating. According to the Talmud, it is the happiest day of the Jewish year. This book explains why Yom Kippur is such a joyous day, and explores the implications of this approach to the holiday as it relates to our entire religious experience.
- Author BiographyShmuel Herzfeld is the rabbi of Ohev Sholom The National Synagogue, and the oldest Orthodox synagogue in Washington, DC.

His first book was Fifty-Four Pick Up: Fifteen-Minute Inspirational Torah Lessons. He lives in Washington, DC.
