Not On Our Shelves—Ships in 1-5 Days

Artfully drawing upon children's own experiences, My Jewish Year conveys the excitement of holiday celebration. The breathless search for the afikoman, the delight of dressing up in costume for Purim, and the awe inspired by the sounding of the shofar - all of the rich traditions and tales of the holidays are captured in this book.

The story of each holiday is presented alongside the rituals, symbols, traditions, and legends that have grown around it. Students also learn the blessings and key vocabulary for each holiday: Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Simhat Torah, Shabbat, Hanukkah, Tu B'Shevat, Purim, Passover, Yom Hashoah, Yom Ha'atzma'ut, and Shavuot.

Lush illustrations and vivid photographs show the holidays as meaningful milestones in the Jewish year.
