Praise for Jewish Family Celebrations

“. . . Describes one family's observance of Sabbath and the holy days, generating conagious pleasure. Here is scholarship enveloped in a joy for Judaism, its traditions and rites. A fine book for newlyweds and a must for young parents.” —Hadassah Magazine

“The book assures that each holiday will become an event for every member of the family.” —San Francisco Jewish Bulletin

“. . . Provides a pleasant and scenic path towards a shared Jewish tradition. While Jewish readers have the most to gain from the book, non-Jews will also find it enjoyable and informative.” —Minneapolis Star and Tribune
