Product Description

A window into Jewish holidays throughout history and as they are observed today--written especially for Christians
Many Christians today are trying to connect with the rootsof their faith by exploring its Jewish origins, asevidenced by the Passover seders that are now offered at many churches. Others find themselves or someone they love in an interfaith relationship and wonder how to learn more about the faith and holidays of their Jewish loved one.
This straightforward guide to the major Jewish holidays is written especially for Christians. Accessible, informative and rich with personal anecdotes, it explores the historical development of each holiday, basic information about the meaning of the holiday, and the ways it is observed today. Holidays include:
  • Rosh Hashanah
  • Yom Kippur
  • Sukkot (Feast of Booths)
  • Hanukkah Purim (Feast of Esther)
  • Passover (Pesach)
  • Shavuot (Giving of the 10 Commandments)
  • Hashoah (Holocaust Memorial Day)
  • Yom Hazikaron (Remembrance Day)
  • Yom Haatzmaut (Israel Independence Day)

Praise for Kerry M. Olitzky and Daniel Judson
An excellent guide. Connects Jewish wisdom and practice into modern everyday life.
Association of Jewish Libraries Newsletter
Succeeds in translating for Christians the richness of Jewish ritual and tradition. A work of profound faith told through spiritually uplifting and engaging prose, as well as through the stories of those who have embraced a life of Jewish ritual and enriched their souls as a result.
The Rt. Rev. Kirk Stevan Smith, PhD, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Arizona
