Rosh Hashanah Cover

"An excellent resource, the book will also afford the non-Jewish reader an opportunity to become more cognizant of the customs which are among the foundations of Western culture."-Horn Book

The High Holy Days celebrate renewal and change. On Rosh Hashanah, the New Year, Jews reflect on their deeds of the past year. By Yom Kippur, they recognize their mistakes and resolve to do better in the coming year. The book also probes the ten days that fall between-the Days of Awe.

Illustrated by Brom Hoban
First Edition 1981
