Editorial Reviews

Review

“This is the kind of book where a reviewer says ‘every family should own one.’ All three volumes will make excellent contributions to the celebrations of our Jewish holidays.”—Sybil Kaplan, National Jewish Post and Opinion (Sybil Kaplan National Jewish Post and Opinion)

“Helpful and informative as well as pleasurable reading, the book’s mixture of styles ranges from popular, reasoned, conceptual, to more scholarly.”—Jewish Book World
(Jewish Book World)

“The last installment in Paul Steinberg’s ‘Celebrating’ series is, like the others, a rich resource for understanding the Jewish holidays and laws.”—Hadassah Magazine (Hadassah Magazine)

“Reading Celebrating the Jewish Year is a great way to prepare for the holidays; it would also make an excellent text for a classroom or discussion groups. Those interested in the Jewish holidays will want to add it to their collection.”—Off The Shelf (Off The Shelf)

“Paul Steinberg explains customs in simple terms accessible to readers of all backgrounds, including gentiles and Jews alike.”—Midwest Book Review (Midwest Book Review)

Every holiday has its own traditions. "Celebrating the Jewish Year: The Spring and Summer Holidays" is an educational manual outlining the meanings, traditions, and purpose of the Jewish year with a focus on the spring and summer. With chapters on Passover, Shavout, and other important annual events, author Paul Steinberg explains customs in simple terms accessible to readers of all backgrounds, including gentiles and Jews alike. "Celebrating the Jewish Year" deserves a place in any Jewish reference collection.

These portray the important feasts of Israel, why they are important and how they are used. For a non-Jewish person, much insight is gained into the unique, special people they are.
