THE JEWISH HOLIDAY HANDBOOK
by Doron Kornbluth
Some Jewish holidays are widely practiced. Others are often ignored. Yet, whether popular or not, the Jewish holidays are largely misunderstood. Of course, Chanukah is about light and Passover is about freedom, but there is so much more. The holidays are more than a collection of individual days. The whole is much greater than the parts. 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.
Thankfully, in our times, there is a wealth of information about the holidays available. There is, in fact, so much information available that it can all seem quite intimidating. This little handbook is like a cheat sheet to address that. 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 most interesting, thought-provoking, and important ideas.
