As the rabbi of a Sephardic synagogue for over twenty years, Rabbi Haim Jachter, who is himself of Ashkenazic descent and trained in Ashkenazic yeshivot, has a unique vantage point from which to observe the differences in customs and halakhot between Ashkenazim and Sephardim.
In Bridging Traditions, Rabbi Jachter applies his wide-ranging expertise toa wide array of divergences between Ashkenazic and Sephardic religious practice, while also capturing the diversity within different Sephardic communities.
Bridging Traditions is essential reading for Jews of all origins who are interested in understanding their own practices and appreciating those of their brethren, and in seeing the kaleidoscope of halachic observance as a multi-faceted expression of an inner divine unity.
