Jewish Life Cycle - Summary
מעגל החיים היהודי
Judaism offers us a wide and exciting variety of ways to mark and celebrate life-cycle events. From birth to adolescence, through marriage, child rearing, and into old age, Jewish communities around the world have created – and continue to create – prayers, songs, and rituals that help us better understand who we are as people, and as Jews, as we go through life’s stages and central events.
In this section, we will discuss the ways the Jewish people mark, understand, and communicate the way we go through our lives, and the ways we celebrate being human and Jewish.
