Excerpt from Introduction:
"In Psalm 100 we are reminded of the unique relationship between Man and God. To celebrate the relationship, we sing, we worship, we recognize His reign over all creation.
This is a book that has come into being to recognize how, why, and with what we can celebrate our relationship with the Almighty. It is not a treatise on Judaism. It is not the penultimate explanation of all things Jewish. It is simply a guide....a guide to the Jewish roots, the crucible, from which Jesus emerged. The celebrations today, including various items used at the celebrations are just the same today as they were in Jesus' day.
Contained in these pages are tools for you to use to "enter His gates". The explanations of various items traditionally found in Jewish homes are for you to use and enjoy. Recently, many Christians from various denominations have expressed interest in understanding these items. Therefore this book came into being. You, too, as a Christian, are invited to incorporate these items into your homes. Since all of these items existed also in Jesus' day and were part of his daily and holiday celebration, they can only help you deepen your spiritual walk."
