Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publishers Weekly
This colorful, accessible guide offers readers a "taste" of 11 different Jewish holidays, including Passover and Purim. The book opens with Shabbat, whose weekly celebration "is one of the most significant steps in creating a Jewish home and strong Jewish identity," and explores holiday traditions in the order they occur through the Jewish year. There are crafts and activities, stories for families to read aloud, games to play and recipes both traditional (latkes) and contemporary (Oreo cheesecake). The book is wonderfully family friendly, with special sections on "kids in the kitchen" and cartoons to tell the holidays' history. Rabbi Joseph Telushkin provides the foreword. (Jan.)
