And what's so important about the Sabbath, anyway? Offering a guide to the history and observation of Jewish festivals, Faydra Shapiro explains the background of each holy day, how it was celebrated in biblical times, and how it is observed today. The book includes the special readings for each holiday, alongside photographs of stunning artifacts associated with these profoundly beautiful traditions.
