The Non-Jew`s Guide to Jewish Holidays

Author: Elizabeth Reynolds

Product code: B499

A detailed book about the Jewish calendar, the Sabbath, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Chanukah. It also explains about holidays such as Tu B`Shevat, Purim, and Yom Hashoah

Why is Chanukah celebrated close to Christmas one year, but closer to Thanksgiving another year? Why do Jews exchange presents on Chanukah? What is Purim and why do Jews dress in costumes when they go to synagogue on that day? And what are the Four Questions anyway?

After reading The Non-Jew`s Guide to Jewish Holidays, you will know the answers to these questions and more. This book will explain why the Jewish holidays are observed and the rituals that are followed during the observances. You will also learn why the holidays are celebrated on different days on the secular calendar each year.

Written by best-selling author Elizabeth Reynolds, this book is the one to buy if you want to learn more. It covers the Jewish holidays in chronological order beginning with the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah. The holidays included in this book are Shabbat (Sabbath), Days of Awe - Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) and Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles), Shemini Atzerit (Eighth Day of Assembly) and Simchat Torah (Joy of the Torah), Chanukah (Festival of Lights), Tu B`Shevat (New Year for Trees), Purim (Feast of Lots), Pesach (Passover), Yom Hashoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day), Shavuot (Festival of Weeks), and Tisha B`Av (The Fast of Av).
