Reviews - What do customers think about Jewish Holidays?

Good, but...  Jun 16, 2006
I like this book. I use this book. I find that it written very matter-of-factly, with little room for interpretation, so it feels sort of un-Jewish in that aspect to me. But, as long as that is in mind, it does offer a lot of good jumping-off points and good ideas and good references.
The Jewish Holidays Explained for All!  Mar 23, 2005
This book is remarkable to me because it has simple explanations, but is never patronizing. The depth is there as well. This is no silly enumerated edition or with kiddie pictures. The focus is on celebration as a family!
wonderful beautiful  Feb 21, 2003
this is a wonderful book. I cannot reccoment it enough to add to your collections of books. A must purchase to review the Jewish holidays. With lovable excerts on how to build a Sukkah and other important observations can be found in the text. Historical importance is detailed in each chapter for each holiday. Also present are wonderfulo pieces of artwork and commentaries.
Our standard Bar/Bat Mitzvah Gift  Jun 10, 2002
This is our standard Bar and Bat Mitzvah gift, which has come in handy this year since one of our children is at the age where there is a simcha every weekend. It is accessible for the kids at this age, and will offer more as they keep it on the bookshelf for adulthood. The production values are nice, and the whole thing neither looks nor sounds (in tone) "too heavy," though in fact the book is thorough and serious. It also works for recipients of all points along the continuum of observance.
Excellent explanations of whats and whys  Feb 23, 2002
I am a Protestant pastor who also teaches a course on the world's religions. This book is written so that someone outside the Jewish faith can readily understand what happens in each Jewish holiday and why. I recommend it highly to anyone who wants to develop a better understanding of Rabbinic Judaism.
