This calendar features beautiful photos of Israel in an attractive full-sized format. It shows lunar phases, and holidays from all over the world like Fetes des Meres (Frances), Queen's Birthday (UK), Foundation Day (Western Australia), Fronleichnam (Denmark), National Aboriginal Day (Canada), Arbor Day, Earth Day, St. George's Day, Dia del Nino, Koninginnedag..... so many holidays I've never even heard of that it is actually quite interesting.

What the calendar lacks is the Jewish holidays. I was surprised that a calendar of Israel had no Jewish holidays, but even more surprised that given it appears to have just about every other holiday in the world from New Zealand to Canada to the US, how could it not include Jewish holidays at least to be complete? Many state functions are closed on Jewish holidays, so shouldn't a calendar of Israel include them? A few major holidays have brief mention (like Passover "begins at Sundown"), but no mention of the last day of Passover which is also a holiday. Shavuot is called Pentecost, and Sukkot is no on here at all, not even called Tabernacles. Forget about Lag B'Omer or Tisha B'Av. But if you want to know when the Melbourne Cup is, you can find it.

Given all that, it might still be a nice calendar of Israel, but the choice of photos would not be appealing to a Jewish audience. There is one photo of the Kotel or Western Wall, but other photos are of Christian or Muslim sites. Once again, not a bad thing for the right audience, but the calendar should still include major holidays in the country that the photo represents. It is like the calendar is totally generic and the photos happen to be of Israel.

Truly not recommended for anybody.

Not great photos, and does not even include many Jewish holidays. This was completely not what I was expecting. I had to buy another calendar to compensate.

I got this calendar because I wanted to get my 8-year-old excited about an upcoming trip to Israel. The photos are mediocre at best. Some photos are not even labeled with the subject. I wish there were some alternatives available with high quality landscape pictures of Israel.
