   The Jewish Life Cycle
by Daniel דניאל Sperber שפרבר /Bar Ilan University Press

This volume describes the major ``rites of passage`` of the Jewish life cycle. From birth, through circumcision, to marriage, divorce, sickness, death and mourning, Daniel Sperber presents detailed descriptions of the major customs attending these events. These customs are examined in light of their original sources, their integration and evolution in varying Jewish communities, and the popular explanations given for their practice, both historically and today. This book draws on the whole spectrum of rabbinic literature, comparing its stories and explanations with folk beliefs of other cultures throughout the world. Sperber makes use of a wide range of resources - medieval and modern, legal, folkloristic, anthropological and literary - in his discussion of customs, proving that Jewish communities were never isolated from their environment. He also examines in depth the earliest origins of many of our well-known and commonly practiced Jewish customs. This book makes use of iconograp

   THE OLD BABYLONIAN LOAN CONTRACT
by AARON אהרון SKAIST סקייסט /Bar Ilan University Press

A study of the geo-historical distribution of all the loan types as well as of the individual clauses used in the Old Babylonian loan con-tract (c. 1900-1600 B.C.E). It is shown that loan types as well as individual formulas have a limited geographical and historical distribution. Further, it is shown that changes that occur during the lifespan of a formula, e.g., changes of interest rate or modes of guaranteeing loans, are also bounded historically and geographically. From the series ``Bar-Ilan Studies in Near Eastern Languages and Culture``. ספר זה בוחן את התפוצה הגאוגרפית וההיסטורית של סוגי חוזי המלווה המסופוטמי
