In Mitzvot: A Sourcebook for the 613 Commandments, best-selling author Rabbi Ronald Isaacs explores the world of mitzvot - the ways of classifying them, the biblical and rabbinic reasons for obeying them, and rationales for those commandments that have been the most enduring. Among the commandments examined are those that relate to the observance of the festivals, family life, the dietary laws, justice, war, animals and agriculture, and ritual purity. Special sections focus on the most famous of the 613 commandments - the Ten Commandments, the commandments as they relate to becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, and an overview of women's obligations in performing commandments. A selection of notable quotations about mitzvot from throughout the ages is also included.
