Editorial Reviews

Barbara Jacobs
A gentle and lovingly compiled cookbook, history, and cultural dictionary of nine Jewish holidays, intended for those within and without the faith. No preaching or proselytizing here; instead, journalist Fellner (with, no doubt, an assist or two from her rabbi husband) scrutinizes key religious celebrations and their background, significance, ceremonies, liturgy, literature, music, customs, and foods. Every chapter is filled with color photographs as well as appropriate illustrations; the more than 90 recipes, lightened for the 1990s and grouped by holiday menu, still manage to say "tradition." This is an information-packed introduction and a reminder of the Jewish religion and way of life.
