The author makes the case that through the observance of a traditional Jewish lifestyle people can achieve a sense of relevance in their lives, learn to accept limitations on their impulses and contribute to social and cultural enrichment. The net effect is, therefore, not that the requirements of the tradition are constraining, but rather that they are expansive.
