Celebrating the Richness of the Jewish Calendar
Faydra L. Shapiro, PH.D.

“Explore the background of each holy day, discover how it was observed in biblical times, and understand how it is observed today. Truly a celebration of Jewish customs, Romance Behind Judaica outlines the special readings for each holiday. Readers of all faiths will come away with an appreciation for the profoundly beautiful traditions at the bedrock of the Jewish heritage.” [From the cover]

“Faydra Shapiro has unparalleled ability to explain the mysteries of Jewish traditions to Christians. I recommend this book highly.”                                                          Gerald McDermott, Boston Divinity School
