Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A Wandering Feast is a delightful book that welcomes the reader to a wonderful journey through the Jewish culture of Eastern Europe. Page after page, you will visit the still-vibrant Jewish world and discover Yiddish folkways, toe-tapping klezmer music, and heart-warming traditional food. Yale Strom and Elizabeth Schwartz have documented an amazing journey–organized around visits to authentic cities and villages in Eastern Europe–with a fascinating travelogue that includes inspiring stories, photographs, music, and recipes. A Wandering Feast reveals that a culture long feared to be gone forever is still very much alive.

"A Wandering Feast is rambunctious, festive, enlightening and . . . yes, tasty."

–Ilan Stavans, author, On Borrowed Words: A Memoir of Language

"Captures, preserves, contectualizes, and celebrates life."

–Annette Insdorf, author, Indelible Shadows: Film and the Holocaust

"A vehicle for an evocation and examination of his personal odyssey, and ultimately of Jewish history and identity."

–Eva Fogelman, author, Conscience and Courage: Rescuers of Jews During the Holocaust

"Strom proves himself a master storyteller and archivist of the lost Jewish worlds of post-Holocaust Europe."

–Thane Rosenbaum, the author of The Golems of Gotham, Second Hand Smoke, and Elijah Visible
