about

Noted folklorist Howard Schwartz retells 12 Jewish tales from around the world. Each tale combines elements of magic with a link to a Jewish holiday, giving new perspectives on Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Hanukkah, Purim, and Passover—plus Shabbat, the weekly Sabbath. These memorable stories of holiday miracles and miraculous escapes have been passed down orally for thousands of years. Now the best of them—from “A Flock of Angels” to “The Enchanted Menorah” and “The Magic Winecup”—have been collected, and enriched by Monique Passicot’s luminous illustrations.
