By Shirley Priscilla Johnson TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on December 1, 2008
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.

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 ).

In a nutshell: This is an absolutely beautiful book from cover to cover, the recipes, crafts and pictures are stunning! While all the items within the book are geared toward a Kosher kitchen and Jewish holidays, most of the craft projects can be changed a little (if needed) to fit into any theme or holiday! This wonderful book has some scrumptious recipes, kids crafts and elegant crafts for adults within each holiday section. With easy-to-follow instructions and beautiful full-color pictures, this book would be a great addition to your bookshelf, or would make a great hostess gift!

My Review:
The pictures above are very pretty, and represent some very nice projects from the book, but they are not my favorites! Some of my favorites are the Decoupaged Apple Dish, children's costume accessories, Embellished Picture Frame and the Decorated Mirror. The pictures don't even include any of the recipes such as: Apple-Pear Gallete, One-Bowl Carrot Cake, Chicken Kabobs and Pomegranate Punch.

Content: There are over 120 colorful projects inside this book, with lots of ideas for get-togethers, including lots of recipes! The book includes things for the following Jewish holidays: Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Succot, Chanakah, Tu B'Shevat, Purim, Pesach, Shavout, Shabbat. It also includes a chapter for every-day use. The content is suitable for all ages, although kids should be supervised by an adult.

Format: The book starts with a note to parents, then a note to kids. The author then talks about kosher kitchens, followed by a product and tool guide and then a section for each major Jewish holiday. For each holiday there are plenty of craft projects and recipes.

Readability: Very easy to read, with clear pictures and easily understood instructions.
