Note: 
This is part of the Festivals Throughout the Year series, which includes books on Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim, Christian, and Sikh festivals as well as this one. The series originated in the United Kingdom. After short introductions to Judaism and Jewish history, it describes ten Jewish festivals, beginning with Shabbat and Rosh Hashanah. A few holiday-related activities are included. The photographs show observant Jews from a variety of backgrounds. The intended audience is not Jewish children: Jews are referred to in the third person as "they." However, the book makes a useful introduction to the Jewish religion in non-Jewish settings.
