Description
From Abraham to Zaydee, and from ancient times to modern day, A is for Abraham: A Jewish Family Alphabet encompasses the history of Jewish traditions and customs and how they are practiced today.Following the alphabet, a poem identifies the letter topic whilesidebar text provides background information.C could be the challah that my bubbe used to braid,or C could be the chicken soup, when I was sick she made,or chocolate coins on Chanukah we added to our coffers.But I say C should be for Chai "To Life" and all it offers.This joyful celebration of family and heritage includes the meaning behind celebrations such as the Festival of Lights, Passover, and Sukkot; important names and stories from theOld Testament; and how modern-day families continue to celebrate their heritage.
