From the courtyards of Constantinople to the farmlands of Poland and war-torn Europe, Jewish history has been a long and winding one. In their travels through the centuries, Jews have endured endless cruelty and suffered the ravages of pogroms and blood libels. Their paths at times taking unexpected turns and dangerous detours, their lives often filled with uncertainty, still their commitment and unwavering devotion to their heritage helped them prevail. They have bestowed upon us a legacy filled with inspiration, faith and hope--a legacy that continues to illuminate the meaning in our own lives as we endeavor to find our way through the twists, turns and unexpected detours that life provides.
These authentic historical tales--researched and revived by well-known author C. B. Weinfeld--are focused around the Jewish holidays and add a special touch year round.
