Holiday Collections

These books are collections of stories about all Jewish holidays. For books on specific holidays (Hanukkah, Shabbat, Purim, Passover, Rosh Hashanah, etc.), go to the pages for the specific holidays. The list is on the frame on the left.

If you wish to purchase any of these books, click on either the title or the book cover to be directed to Amazon.com. As a warning, I have put up pictures of the book covers to give you somewhat an idea of the style of each book (I know, I know. "Don't judge a book by its cover") so the pages may load slowly, depending on the speed of your internet connection.

Poems for Jewish Holidays
Sixteen poems celebrate 12 Jewish holidays. The poems vary from the traditional "Had Gadya'' taken from the Passover Haggadah, to the more playful, contemporary "First Night of Hanukkah'' by Ruth Rosten and the more sensitive and moving "Tisha B'Av,'' by Meyer Hahn, which commemorates a Jewish day of mourning. Several of the poems were commisioned for this volume, and therefore do not appear anywhere else. Images effectively convey the moods of different holidays. However, it is Bloom's black-and-white illustrations that make this a truly distinguished book. Each of the ten full-page charcoal paintings captures the different aspects of the Jewish experience while keeping with the spirit of the poem. "Tu B'Shevat,'' the Jewish Arbor Day, is accompanied by a picture of the pioneers cultivating their land in Palestine, the light shining through the clouds representing the hope they felt despite adversity. The poem for "Simchat Torah,'' a joyous holiday, appears in a circle; the illustration shows a modern Chasidic circle dance in which the characters fairly leap off the page. Fine poetry and moving illustrations combine to make this an excellent choice to fill a void in collections serving Jewish patrons.

The Jewish Holiday Craft Book
The Jewish Holiday Craft Book
A great resource for Jewish families, educators, and those promoting multiculturalism in their curriculum. Each of the 10 sections focuses on a holiday and offers introductory information about that particular celebration and step-by-step instructions for several related crafts. Colorful collage illustrations accompany the text and help to clarify the directions. Most projects utilize materials that can be found around the house and are easy enough for elementary school children to create independently. Making a Kiddush cup for the Sabbath, a decorative fruit and vegetable hammock for Sukkot, and a flag for Simchat Torah are among the crafts included. Although similar books are available, Ross's clearly presented directions that produce attractive finished products should be a hit.

Let's Celebrate Our Jewish Holidays

By Alfred J. Kolatch
Starting with the Sabbath, this overview explains how 13 Jewish holidays are celebrated. The chapters are short, and each page has a lot of white space and illustrations. The chapters on Chanuka and Purim are the longest, because Kolatch explains the history associated with those holidays. The information about the meanings of the holidays and their symbols is better delivered than the history as the author is not a lively storyteller. Yom Ha-Shoah (Holocaust Day), not often included in books for this age range, is explained well. Told from a traditional Ashkenazi perspective, the material is factual and orderly.

Jewish Holidays All Year Round: A Family Treasury

By Ilene Cooper
For the first time, the richness of the Jewish tradition is combined with lavish and intriguing artworks from the collection of The Jewish Museum in New York City to produce a treasury that is ideal for the entire family. The story of the Jewish people goes back thousands of years. And every year is punctuated by special days when families rejoice in a rich heritage, recall history, renew the spirit, and remember what it means to be Jews. Jewish Holidays All Year Round allows everyone, from the youngest to the oldest, to explore the true meaning of these special days.

The traditions and history of each holy day are explained in simple, clear language, along with the ways in which the day is observed, both in the synagogue and at home. Great crafts (including a miniature sukkah) and recipes (for tasty treats such as hamentashen) invite children and families to make every celebration uniquely their own.

Elijah's Tears
Elijah's Tears : Stories for the Jewish Holidays
In a clear, graceful preface, Pearl talks about Elijah's role in Jewish folklore, including his traditional appearance at the Passover seder. She invents five fantasy stories in the spirit of that tradition--two for Passover, one each for Succot, Hanukkah, and Yom Kippur--where Elijah appears with mysterious powers in ordinary life, in disguise and just in time to help someone in trouble. In the best story a boy wraps his tallis (prayer shawl) round the trembling shoulders of a cold and hungry man: was he Elijah? The illustrations were unseen in galley but the bright dust jacket picture evokes Chagall-style shtetl scenes. A long glossary explains the many Hebrew words in the text. The telling is sometimes a bit flowery and exclamatory (especially in the story where Pearl gives Elijah a sister), but at its best the style is lyrical, chatty, and immediate.
