Rick Light's list of books on Jewish rituals begins with a Passover Haggadah, A Seder of Light, that is unique, beautiful, and a delight for all ages.  Next is the award-winning, Jewish Rites of Death, an introduction to the beauty and meaning of Jewish rituals at the end of life.  The list ends with several well-respected taharah manuals, books to help in the performance of this age-old ritual of respectfully and beautifully preparing the dead for burial.
