JEWISH HOLIDAY FESTIVAL
Jewish Holidays & Festivals The Jewish holidays are the highlights of the year for all who observe them. They cast a glow on ordinary days, and serve as spiritual beacons, providing solace and inspiration to help us live more fulfilling lives. Here, in simple language, are the stories, practices, and prayers of the Jewish holidays. Included are accounts of the Sabbath, Sukkoth, and Chanukah. The story of Passover and its overriding importance in the Jewish faith, as well as Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Purim, and Shavouth are also explored and explained in depth. These celebrations and observances represent a special time for Jews everywhere. With this book, the authors, both Talmudic scholars, reach out to young people and others who want to learn and understand more about Judaism, and to reinforce their commitment to the faith on the holidays, and every day in between. Dr. Isador Margolis served as executive director of the National Council for Torah Education. Rabbi Sidney L. Markowitz is the author of What You Should Know About Jewish Religion, History, Ethics, and Culture, a classic in its field.
