Synopses & Reviews
The High Holidays are the most important festivals of the Jewish year, and all Jews have their own memories of these special days. Its 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, and even online in Los Angeles. The stories come from people of all ages, all professionals, from New York to California, New Zealand to England. And you dont have to be Jewish to appreciate this—the twenty-first century world is a much smaller world, and many faiths can come together and appreciate these stories.
