For a limited time we’re pleased to offer copies signed by Naama Shefi and Devra Ferst.

From Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur to Passover and Shavuot, with a special section for Shabbat, this attractive book showcases holiday celebrations in Jewish communities and traditions on five continents.

The menus and recipes are wide ranging and appealing, with attractive photographs for dishes that begin with Persian fried eggplant with mint dressing and end with meringue with orange marmalade (from Brazil).

Just as important, though, are the family narratives which frame each holiday menu, memorializing communities and people in Zimbabwe, London, Bukhara, Denmark, Hungary, Mexico, Virginia, Iraq and elsewhere. There’s a tension between what has been lost or left behind, and what has been preserved that makes many of the accounts poignant as well as heartfelt.

You could never cook from this book and still gain much from it.
