THE PASSOVER JOURNEY by Barbara Diamond Goldin

THE PASSOVER JOURNEY

A Seder Companion
Age Range: 5 & up

KIRKUS REVIEW

 A lovely book that's intended as a companion to, rather than a substitute for, a Passover Haggadah. The text is divided into two sections: one deals with the biblical stories and ancient rabbinic writings (Midrashim) telling of Moses's birth and how he was able to lead the Jewish people out of enslavement; the second discusses the Seder service and various traditions surrounding it. Well-researched, and written in simple but effective language, this will be welcomed in general collections, by families wanting to enrich their understanding and celebration of Passover, and by synagogues and religious schools. Waldman's watercolors are quietly handsome--even when depicting the plagues that were sent to scourge the Egyptians. Useful and attractive. Notes on sources; glossary. (Nonfiction. 5+)
