The Story of Shabbat

The Story of Shabbat Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It is Friday evening, and the sun is about to set. If you are Jewish, you are probably getting ready to light candles, say blessings, and eat delicious food. What is the special occasion? It is the Sabbath, or the Day of Rest.

The bible tells how God created the world in six days, and on the seventh day God rested. This day was called the Sabbath.

Molly Cone's clear, informative text and Emily Lisker's warm paintings present the cultural and historical origins of the Sabbath and the many meaningful traditions that are still practiced today. Instructions for making your own challah bread and challah cover round out this celebration of a very special day of thanks, rest, and renewal.

Synopsis:

Cone explains the history and traditions that are part of the Jewish holiday of Shabbat. Full-color illustrations.
