Mentioned more than 50 times throughout the Torah, Passover might be considered its very centerpiece and a prominent source of Jewish identity. Paul Steinbergs book is a rich and inspiring celebration of the history and traditions of Passover and the other spring and summer festivals, offering us ways to add new meaning and spirituality to holiday celebrations.
The Spring and Summer Holidays is the final volume in the three-book series that covers all of the major Jewish festivals. The books blend the old and the new as they examine the origins and traditions of each holiday and inspire us to add our own expression to these special days. A peek at the table of contents for The Spring and Summer Holidays reveals selections by a wealth of Jewish greats: Maimonides, Abraham Joshua Heschel, Emmanuel Levinas, Nehama Leibowitz, Arnold M. Eisen, Arthur Green, David Wolpe and many more.
Whether you are experiencing a holiday for the first time or seeking to renew the spirit of your celebration, Celebrating the Jewish Year is a collection that you will turn to year after year. A must-have for every Jewish home.
