Where should I start? The photographs are awesome and the directions easy to follow, complete with a well laid out list of items needed for each project. And as someone who like making classy items that I am proud to own or give, I have to say this book is a keeper!

The Rosh Hashanah apple stamp card on pages 20-21 and the decoupaged apple dish on pages 28-29 are ones I loved. As are the Yom Kippur sweet scent sachets on page 48. I grow and dry lavander so this project is and was a keeper.

The hanging flower balls on pages 68-69 are ones I make all year round actually, and they make wonderful gifts. The Chanukah glowing glass menorah on page 90-91 are what I will make this year. As well as the tray on pages 100-101.The sedar plate on pages 168-169 for Pesach/Passover is something I have made and plan on making for a friend.

As for recipes I cannot rave loud enough about the Almond snowballs on page 126-127 or the mini cheesecakes on page 208, and alas the macaroons on page 188 which everyone I know LOVES. These are also a great beginner cookie for kids to learn to make.

The mezuzah project on page 246-247 are so much fun and I have used the idea to create my own style.

Trust me, this is a book that will be used as a reference book for years. By family and friends of all ages.

I am always interested in different traditions and ideas when it comes to crafting and cooking, and this beautiful book, Crafting Jewish, is one of the finest I have seen in a long time. Inside the cover of this work you will find holiday crafts and party ideas, with the Jewish theme, to make that will delight everyone involved.
The book starts out giving you a complete guide of products and tools that you will need. There are even pictures to insure that you have use of the correct material.
I was very impressed.

We than travel on to the different Jewish Holidays, or times of year such as, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur or, Shabbat. Under each one the holiday is explained and different crafts are presented to be made that would be used during this time. For each craft you are given a check list of what you will need and complete simply instructions on how to do it. To top it off you are also given recipes of foods that are cooked and eaten during this holiday with pictures that will make your mouth water and urge you to cook away. You will also find an explanation of why these foods are prepared and eaten, and what their meaning has. I loved that part. It brought such personality to the book that you felt part of the festivities. Great job. At the end of the book there is a section titled, "For Every Day," that gives you eight fun crafts that can be made anytime. And you are given templates and a listing of resources that are sure to help.

I have to say, this is much, much more than a crafting book. It is an explanation of Jewish heritage, tradition, the very essence of whom they are. This work brings to life their past, merging with their present shown through their crafts and food.

273 pages full color book, a welcome addition to your cooking as well as crafting libraries. Every Jewish Holiday is covered with sumptuous recipes and ideas to be welcomed by every age, young and senior in the family. The full color photos make you want to dig right in cooking and crafting. Each recipe carries a complete list of what you will need and step-by-step instructions of how to make the featured item. It even tells where to buy some of the odd crafting items! You'll enjoy crafting and eating for years to come with this super volume.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Joseph S. Maresca HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on November 14, 2008
The work is a treatise on how to prepare traditional
foods. For instance, meat and dairy are cooked
separately using different utensils. The blood of
meat is removed in accordance with Jewish law.
The work cites parve which is neither meat nor dairy.

Rosh Hashanah is noted for reflection. The period is a
time for hope and eternal optimism. The author explains
how to prepare the Midot and Mitzvot journals during the
10 Days of Atonement. There are extensive templates at
the end of the book.

A number of popular foods have been listed together with
the applicable recipes. i.e.
o preparation of carrot cake
o Challah recipe for Shabbat
o Butternut squash for Shabbat
o Pomegranate punch

A section of the work describes popular arts and crafts. i.e.
o Apple-stamped cards
o Shanah tova card collage(s)combined with clip art

The book is perfect for planning formal Kosher foods and
hosting holiday events. The presentation could have a sequel
describing the preparation of global Jewish dishes. i.e.

Ashkenazi foods: sweet potato and carrot tzimmes, matzo meal,
beet root soup, bagels w/salmon and cream cheese,
strudels, kugels and cheesecakes, cholent from France
and fish/chips by Portuguese Marrano Jews of the 16th century

Sephardic preparations: boneless veal and mushroom stew,
rice and beans (checked with care) for Passover,
Sephardic charoses-Morocan style (walnuts, raisins,
dates, dried apricots, black figs, cherry preserves,
ginger root, shredded mint, fresh ground pepper and
Passover wine ).
