About the Author

Rabbi Arthur O. Waskow is an author and political activist associated with the Jewish Renewal movement. He is the founder and director of the Shalom Center and the author of numerous books, including Godwrestling and Down-to-Earth Judaism: Food, Money, Sex, and the Rest of Life.


"Seasons of Our Joy brings reverent renewal to ancient practices. And it presents new understanding and approaches that we are invited to sanctify. This book will heighten your awareness of the eternal religious power of the Jewish calendar." - Rabbi Gordon Tucker, former dean, Jewish Theological Seminary "There is a poetic quality to the writing, and the ideas are original, provocative, and enriching." - Library Journal "Arthur Waskow's fresh, imaginative vision brings the familiar Jewish holidays to life with new meaning." - Rabbi Harold S. Kushner "Arthur Waskow's unique voice, at once eloquent, musical, creative, and passionate, rings throughout Seasons of Our Joy, weaving together strands of Jewish life: the meaning of our ceremonies and celebrations; the spirituality of the individual; the essential fragility and wonder of the world entrusted to us; the mystical chains that bind together the generations; and, permeating all of that, Waskow's powerful Jewish vision of peace and justice." - Rabbi David Saperstein, director, Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism
