Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Rivkah Lambert
The Belfer's are the only Jewish family in their local Louisiana town. Toby Belfer's best friend Donna is curious about the Passover holiday that her Jewish friend celebrates. So the Belfers invite Donna and her family to their Passover seder. Toby Belfer's Seder is an introduction to the Passover holiday for children (and adults) who want to know more about this unique Jewish celebration. Unusual for a children's book, the pages include a listing of the parallels between Passover and Easter, a glossary of Hebrew terms used in the story, a brief bibliography and an abridged version of the traditional Passover song "Dayenu".
