For those seeking to learn more about Jewish celebrations, Cantor Matt Axelrod has written a guide for the reader who has no prior knowledge about the Jewish holidays — as well as the reader who knows the basics about the holidays but wants to understand them on a deeper level. Your Guide to the Jewish Holidays takes a humorous, light-hearted look at the eleven most important Jewish holidays. Instead of simply explaining that Jews are obligated to observe in a certain way because of a biblical text, Axelrod shows where each holiday, along with its rituals, came from in a historical context.
