More Jewish Culture & Customs: A Sampler of Jewish Life
by Steve Herzig
Thousands of readers enjoyed Steve Herzig’s first book, Jewish Culture and Customs. In response to a great host of requests from appreciative readers. The Friends of Israel is pleased to bring you this excellent sequel that will take you on yet another irresistible tour through the colorful world of Judaism.
With exceptional skill, Steve will transport you into the realm of Jewish experience—a culture rich in tradition, symbolism, and the celebration of life. THE REASON FOR THIS BOOK IS SIMPLE. Jesus the Messiah was born a Jew in Israel, the Land God promised to His people. His followers were all Jews who practiced their faith. Anyone who holds the Scriptures to be the Word of God will desire a better understanding of the people he chose and called “the apple of His eye.”
In More Jewish Culture & Customs, you will learn about Jewish holidays, mikvehs, kibbutzim, Jewish music and humor, and a wide variety of other fascinating subjects. The episodes included in this book provide a clear and enjoyable encounter with the vibrant world of Judaism and life in the Jewish community. And in the process, you’ll gain a better understanding and appreciation for the Chosen People, the Bible, and see your faith as a Christian in a whole new light.
