Jewish holidays

Jewish Holidays All Year Round: A Family Treasury
by Ilene Cooper
illustrations by Elivia Savadier

Throughout the year, Jewish families celebrate many holidays. This book, produced in association with The Jewish Museum in New York City, is a good way to learn more about these special days and why they are significant. The meanings behind each holiday is explained, along with the ways in which the holiday is observed, both at home and in the synagogue. Crafts and recipes are included. The instructions are not always simple, but they are good for families to do together. Illustrated by playful pen-and-ink drawings and artifacts and photographs from The Jewish Museum, the book serves as an apt reminder of Jewish history for Jewish young people and as a useful introduction to Jewish holidays to others.
