The meaning of Passover

Wonders and Miracles: A Passover Companion
written and compiled by Eric A. Kimmel

Many books about Passover focus solely on the Seder meal without going into too much detail about each ritual. Some parts are left out, such as the story of the five rabbis, the story of Elijah, and the story of Miriam. 

Kimmel's Passover Companion uses stories, poetry, songs prayers and recipes to interpret the meaning behind each sedar ritual. The history of Passover is further illuminated by details from medieval texts, reproductions of significant paintings, and photos of Judaic artifacts. 

Elegantly presented, this handsome book makes the holiday relevant and understandable to all.
