Reviews - What do customers think about The Jewish Spirit: A Celebration in Stories & Art?

Beautiful Book~Inspiring stories for Jew and Gentile Alike.  Jun 2, 2008
This is a beautiful book and the stories are very unique and inspiring. Being Gentile they are new sotries to me but I am sure to those of the Jewish faith a treasury of long know and loved stories. The illustration are fantastic and I cannot say enough about having this book in my home. Not a book you sit and read strait thru but savor over tiem.

A must have for a wel rounded library.
Gift for a friend.  Feb 27, 2008
I ordered this book here, because it was sold out at another shop when I went to pick it up. It will be a Hannukah gift.

I don't know all that much about Judaism, as I'm not Jewish. But it looks to be a very good story and should make my friend smile, and perhaps learn something he maybe didn't know.

Alot of times, I am very pleased with this site. They often have products that are discontinued or unavailable elsewhere. It's a great alternative to sitting there, hoping something comes back on a shelf.

Great work!
Table-book pleasure  Feb 7, 2005
This is a very pleasant and well- done work. The combination of art work and literary selections provides interest and entertainment. This is not however a scholarly work, and does not explore any of its themes in real depth. It is the kind of book which can be dipped in, and tasted usually with delight. Of the various table- book anthologies on Jewish culture that have appeared in the past ten years or so, this is certainly one of the best.
