The Jewish holidays are largely misunderstood.
Of course, Chanukah is about light and Passover is about freedom, but there is so much more.
Each Jewish holiday has much to teach us, and together they form a beautiful and intricate system.
The holidays accompany us through the seasons, years, and our lives.
They offer comfort and meaning. Understood properly, they can turn what seems like a 'boring, repetitive' religion into an incredible, inspiring identity.
In The Jewish Holiday Handbook, readers can quickly get an idea of each holiday’s main activities and themes.
Each chapter includes a brief description of the holiday, a summary of preparations and practices, and a short look at some of the holiday’s most interesting, thought-provoking, and important ideas.
Bestselling author, popular tour guide, and renowned international lecturer Doron Kornbluth has done a masterful job of bringing the holidays to life.
