Jewish Days and Holidays

Frankel Alona, Author, Greer F. Cashman, Author, Alona Frankel, Author Adama Books $11.95 (61p) ISBN 978-0-915361-58-8
With a minimum of repetition and a generous amount of examples and stories, Cashman provides a lucid overview of the traditional Jewish holidays as well as Israel Independence Day, the Ninth of Av fast and the Sabbath. Her approach is refreshingly pluralistic (""Not all Jews celebrate the Sabbath exactly alike''). Sidebars highlight various symbols, including the Passover seder plate and the Sukot etrog, or citron. Frankel's brightly colored graphicschunky children dancing with Torahs, plump Chanukah jelly doughnuts, curly coated sacrificial lambsdelightfully enliven a serious subject and convey the joy of the Jewish holidays.
