Holiday Collections

(Page 4)


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.

The Uninvited 
Guest and Other Jewish Holiday Tales
The Uninvited Guest and Other Jewish Holiday Tales
Elivia's bright, flowing artwork, in a rainbow of colors, reflects both the magic and the joy of the seven splendid Jewish holiday tales simply and beautifully retold here. From an original story in which a magician's spell makes adults forget how to celebrate Sukkot to a humorous yarn about two of the residents of the silly town of Chelm, the tales--one each for Shabbat, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Hanukkah, Sukkot, Passover, and Purim--are dramatic, fabulous, clever, and magical, and each reflects the message or spirit of the holiday as deftly discussed in Jaffe's story introductions. In a separate chapter, Jaffe thoroughly explains her sources and includes by-the-by information on the tales. She also provides a helpful glossary, with pronunciation guidance, that will be wonderful for young readers as well as teachers who want to explore Jewish culture in more depth. A bibliography and a list of recommended reading titles will help kids further pursue their interest.

The Hebrew Months Tell Their Story

By Reudor
Each two-page representation of a Jewish month includes a "frame" around the cartoon reminiscent of an animated version of a Greco-Roman stage, including a singsong rhyme. Below the frame is a listing of events that happened that month. Major holidays earn an additional two-page spread (Passover shows Moses leading a chortling band of costumed characters across the desert).
