Overview

This set includes all three volumes in the Celebrating the Jewish Year series, for less than the cost of buying each book separately! Included in the set: The Fall Holidays: Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot; The Winter Holidays: Hanukkah, Tu B’Shevat, Purim; and the newly-released Spring and Summer Holidays: Passover, Shavuot, The Omer, Tisha B’Av. Perfect for every family and library bookshelf, these books offer rich collections of readings from many Jewish greats of the past and present—Maimonides, Rashi, Irving Greenberg, Shlomo Carlebach, Marge Piercy, Abraham Joshua Heschel, Arthur Green, and many more. The readings teach us about the history of each holiday, as well as its theological, ethical, and seasonal importance; others give us inspiration and food for thought. These stories, essays, poems, anecdotes, and rituals help us discover how deeply Jewish traditions are rooted in nature’s yearly cycle, and how beautifully season and spirit are woven together throughout the Jewish year.
