A wonderful resource! Written from a Christian perspective, Martha Zimmerman gives step-by-step instructions on how to celebrate Old Testament feasts in your home. Included holidays are Passover, Sabbath, Feast of Booths, and others. Each section is devoted to a particular holiday, and contains recipes, lists of needed items and, most importantly, ways to teach and include children in the festivities. What we found especially poignant were the New Testament fulfillment verses that Mrs. Zimmerman has interwoven throughout the traditional services. A wonderful resource for today's Christian families!

Format: Paperback
I have studied Jewish holidays in both their Jewish and Messianic context, and I can confirm the position of another reviewer: that is, the book presents less of a Christian perspective than a Christian revamping. The problem is that often times Christians will drastically alter the method of celebration. For example, in the Passover haggadah, the fifteen steps are completely missing in a logical fashion, despite the fact the fifteen steps are designed to replace the use of the Psalms of Ascents from the Second Temple period, when the haggadah was formed. Another example is Shavout. She recommends playing a game of "slaps" to keep one awake all night to study Torah. However, I do believe that I have the backing of several authorities when I say that if one must force themselves awake, it is less meritorious than had they just gone to bed when they got tired. Zimmerman states in the portion about Kashering for Passover that we are "teaching principles, not rules." However, it is important to remember in the laws of Pesach that the alien who desires to celebrate Pesach must abide by the same rules of removing leaven as a Jew. Not that I am advocating a legalistic or even strict interpretation of the rules of Kashrut for Pesach, but I am saying you cannot pick and choose which part of the holiday you will keep and which you will not.
Of course, there is also a demonstrated lack of understanding of Talmudic regulations towards the holidays, again in regards to Shavout. Zimmerman and her family mark the first fruit to grow on their fruit trees to be offered when they ripen, in accordance with the Biblical command, I will admit. However, agricultural injunctions are only applicable inside of Israel.

Format: Paperback
If you really want to understand the appointed times and feasts, read God's Appointed Times (Kasdan) or The Fall Feasts of Israel (Glaser). The author of this book doesn't have a firm grasp of the rituals, and in some cases, even has things backward. For instance, in her sample Passover seder, she translates the worshipful Dayenu (it would have been sufficient) into the lamenting "we should have been satistied." It's a good idea, but a bad implementation.

This book looks so good! Just what I need.
It is called Celebrate the Feasts and it is all about making the traditions described in the Old Testament real and alive to you and your family. Martha Zimmerman wants us to experiences the Word of God through seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting and feeling.
The writer does not want the book to used in a legalistic way but rather to tie in and have the jigsaw all fit together!
First, Martha Z explains why the feasts were important and then she lists the materials you'll need to oberve your own. (she does think that most materials will be found in your own home) and then she gives details on how to celebrate these feasts in your own home.
Feasts that are looked at are - Sabbath,
Passover
the Omer (Feats of the First Fruits)
Shavuoth (Feats of Pentecost)
Rosh Hashanah (Feats of Trumpets)
Yom Kippur ( Day of Atonement) and
Sukkoth (the Feasts of Tabernacles)
Even I can understand this book!

I bought this book maybe 16 years ago and have used it so much. I have became known for my Challah bread and the recipe is in this book for Sabbath, even how to braid it. This book is great for beginners, especially new to keeping the Feast. Its very easy to understand and follow. Mrs Zimmerman uses scripture from the Bible to explain the biblical feast to you. She shares craft ideas to help you celebrate also. Its a worth the read resource you will use over and over again as you celebrate YHVH's feast and Holy days. Enjoy! Blessings!!!
