Celebrating the Jewish Holidays is a comprehensive collection of Jewish writing pertaining to the six most celebrated Jewish holidays (Sabbath, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Hanukkah, Purim, and Passover). This impressive volume brings together literature from eastern and western Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, and North America, and contains work by some of the most renowned Jewish poets and writers from throughout the centuries. Among the many selections included are works by medieval poets Yehuda Halevi and Solomon Ibn Gabirol; fiction by the great Yiddish language authors Sholom Aleichem, I. L. Peretz, and Isaac Bashevis Singer; autobiographical essays by Golda Meir, Theodor Herzl, and Elie Wiesel; and selections from such well known contemporary American-Jewish writers as Allegra Goodman, Grace Paley, Cynthia Ozick, Marge Piercy, and Nathan Englander.

Informative introductory essays discuss the cultural and historical significance of each holiday and give context to the individual literary selections. The collection also includes useful biographic notes for all authors represented. This memorable volume will be a perfect and valued gift for any holiday throughout the year.
