Simply Jewish: the book that answers your questions about Judaism
Have you ever been perplexed at a traditional Jewish wedding, or unsure about what to do during a “shiva”visit? Have you wondered how or why to make a bar or bat mitzvah? Do you know what makes some foods ‘kosher’ and others non-kosher? “Simply Jewish” provides the answers to these questions and many, many others.
“Simply Jewish” is a concise, illustrated guide to understanding the rituals, customs and practices of Judaism. The book features chapters such as Ritual Items, Kosher, Lifecycle Events, Shabbat, Major Holidays, Minor Holidays, Fast Days and Days of Remembrance, and the Three Pillars Upon Which the World Stands.
Each topic is described in a brief, yet informative manner. Beautiful color photography compliments the text, as does the frequent “insider sections”. The helpful appendix includes many prayers in Hebrew, English and transliterated formats. The appendix also includes several recipes from Jamie Geller’s popular book, “Quick & Kosher: Recipes From the Bride Who Knew Nothing”.
The Simply Jewish Haggadah

But, The Simply Jewish Haggadah is so much more than just a Haggadah!
