Synopsis

Holidays Around the World Celebrate Passover by Deborah Heiligman

Celebrate Passover continues the spectacular Holidays Around the World series by looking at Passover celebrations all over the world. Using fairly brief text and approximately 25 vibrant photographs, the book gives a flavour for the holiday from a global perspective. Celebrate Passover focuses on historical and cultural aspects of the holiday: traditions, food, and types of celebration. The extensive back matter includes fun facts; a recipe; a glossary; a map showing the locations of the photographs in the book; a resource list of books, videos, and Web sites; and, a note from an expert consultant. This note, aimed at parents and teachers, helps put Passover in a greater cultural and historic context. Celebrate Passover shows a range of celebrations of this significant holiday in the Jewish calendar. Lasting seven days in Israel and eight days elsewhere, the holiday celebrates freedom and commemorates the Jews' exodus from Egypt after generations of slavery. Traditional Passover seders, or special ceremonial feasts, are rich observances of a holiday celebrated by Jews all over the world. Deborah Heiligman's inviting, second-person text evokes the flavor of Passover - its sense of history, its associations with social justice - while providing accessible rich information about its origins and variations.

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
