For Jewish people every year is punctuated by special days when families rejoice in a rich heritage, recall history, renew the spirit and remember what it means to be Jewish. This illustrated book introduces the richness of the Jewish tradition and the holy days that accompany all of the major Jewish festivals. It allows young readers to explore the true meaning of these special days. The traditions and history of each holy day are explained in simple, clear language, along with the ways in which the day is observed, both in the synagogue and at home. The book also looks at crafts (including a miniature sukkah) and recipes for the special foods eaten on these occasions. The book is illustrated with artwork and photographs from the Jewish Museum and with drawings by Elivia Savadier.
