Overview

Thousands of years of Jewish history come vividly to life in the 41 delightful illustrations in this unique coloring book. Pictured are key moments in the rituals and celebrations associated with Jewish holidays and traditions. To further explain the significance of these moments, and the holidays and traditions they serve, artist Chaya Burstein has written an introduction to the subject and extensively detailed captions for each illustration.
Children are invited to color vignettes depicting the Friday night Sabbath blessing, the building of a sukkah, the making of noise in the synagogue on Purim, a Passover Seder, and the parading of the scrolls on Simhat Torah. Other holidays and special observations include Hanukkah, Yom Kippur, Rosh Ha-Shanah, Tu Bi-Shevat, Holocaust Remembrance Day, Israel Independence Day, Lab Ba-Omer, Shavuot, and Tisha Be-Av.
As they bring their own creativity to these appealing illustrations, children will discover new meaning in the heritage of Judaism. To help them better understand the sequence of the holidays and the nature of the rituals, Chaya Burstein has included a Jewish holiday calendar and a glossary of Jewish ritual objects.
