High Holiday Stories

Publisher: Frederick Fell Publishers, Inc.

The High Holidays are the most important festivals of the Jewish year, and all Jews have their own memories of these special dyas. It's a time to remember, a time to be with families, and a time to tell stories about past generations. High Holiday Stories is filled with 101 heartfelt holiday remembrances, from famous people, and some only known to their own circle of family and friends. They recount varied Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur experiences, from observing the holiday in the Colorado Rockies to Army bases in Iraq, even online in L.A. The stories come from people of all ages, all professionals, from New York to California, New Zealand to England. And you don't have to be Jewish to appreciate this, because with the 21st century being a much smaller world, many faiths can come together and appreciate these stories.
