Synopsis

This seven-volume series is the perfect gift for home and synagogue libraries. This treasure, considered one of the most outstanding series covering the history and celebration of the Jewish holidays, includes selections from prose, poetry, and Scripture. Special sections with songs, recipes, and children's stories complete each volume.

Excerpt

During the course of the years I compiled this book, I have profited from the advice and guidance of many scholars and librarians, and owe them a sincere debt of gratitude. I would also like to single out for special thanks those of my collaborators who have made original contributions to this volume.

Mrs. Rachel Wischnitzer, the distinguished historian and critic of Jewish art, has written the interesting study of Passover in art to be found in this volume. Mrs. Judith K. Eisenstein, who has contributed significant works in the field of Jewish music, has written the illuminating chapter on Passover music and included in it a number of musical illustrations.

I am grateful to the following persons who have been kind enough to offer various helpful suggestions: the late Rabbi Joseph L. Baron, Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Leah M. Jaffa, executive secretary, National Jewish Music Council; Bernard Postal, director, Bureau of Public Information, National Jewish Welfare Board; Dr. Cecil Roth, Oxford, England; and Dr. Zalmen Slesinger, American Association for Jewish Education.
