The Jewish tradition holds that parents bear the responsibility of teaching children the Torah, the ethical way to live, as well as the history of Judaism. But how can parents teach these crucial lessons in ways that are entertaining, meaningful, and respectful? What happens if they can't remember all the lessons and important historical events? This Family Treasury of Jewish Holidays offers some solutions to these quandaries. For instance, by reading the compelling Hebrew stories and poems aloud, parents help children learn through the realm imagination--the place where characters, images, and ancient lessons come alive. "Listening to a riveting story will build anticipation for a holiday, encourage a wish for a Jewish life, and create sweet memories of reading together," offers Malka Drucker in her introduction. The treasury also includes numerous poems, holiday crafts, recipes, and family activities. This is an excellent gift and keepsake for any Jewish household with young children. --Gail Hudson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From Publishers Weekly
The unabashedly old-fashioned flavor of this oversized volume invites browsing as well as close reading of its profusely illustrated pages. Opening with a discussion of Rosh Hashanah, the book continues through the Jewish calendar, focusing on nine holidays and festivals from Hanukkah and Passover to Tu B' Sh'vat ("the trees' birthday") and Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day); there is also a section on Shabbat. In addition to her own absorbing, clear explanations, Drucker (Grandma's Latkes) assembles a lavish array of supplemental material, with poems and folktales by Isaac Bashevis Singer and Myra Cohn Livingston as well as recipes, songs, directions for holiday-related crafts-even a play for Purim. Patz's (Moses Supposes His Toeses Are Roses) watercolor illustrations, borders, and accent decoration further enliven the collection. Truly a "treasury." All ages.
