The Holocaust s Jewish Calendars Book Review:

Calendars map time, shaping and delineating our experience of it. While the challenges to tracking Jewish conceptions of time during the Holocaust were substantial, Alan Rosen reveals that many took great risks to mark time within that vast upheaval. Rosen inventories and organizes Jewish calendars according to the wartime settings in which they were produced—from Jewish communities to ghettos and concentration camps. The calendars he considers reorient views of Jewish circumstances during the war and show how Jews were committed to fashioning traditional guides to daily life, even in the most extreme conditions. In a separate chapter, moreover, he elucidates how Holocaust-era diaries sometimes served as surrogate Jewish calendars. All in all, Rosen presents a revised idea of time, continuity, the sacred and the mundane, the ordinary and the extraordinary even when death and destruction were the order of the day. Rosen’s focus on the Jewish calendar—the ultimate symbol of continuity, as weekday follows weekday and Sabbath follows Sabbath—sheds new light on how Jews maintained connections to their way of conceiving time even within the cauldron of the Holocaust.

Days of Awe Book Review:

For many Jewish people in the mid-twentieth century, Zionism was an unquestionable tenet of what it meant to be Jewish. Seventy years later, a growing number of American Jews are instead expressing solidarity with Palestinians, questioning old allegiances to Israel. How did that transformation come about? What does it mean for the future of Judaism? In Days of Awe, Atalia Omer examines this shift through interviews with a new generation of Jewish activists, rigorous data analysis, and fieldwork within a progressive synagogue community. She highlights people politically inspired by social justice campaigns including the Black Lives Matter movement and protests against anti-immigration policies. These activists, she shows, discover that their ethical outrage at US policies extends to Israel's treatment of Palestinians. For these American Jews, the Jewish history of dispossession and diaspora compels a search for solidarity with liberation movements. This shift produces innovations within Jewish tradition, including multi-racial and intersectional conceptions of Jewishness and movements to reclaim prophetic Judaism. Charting the rise of such religious innovation, Omer points toward the possible futures of post-Zionist Judaism.

My Jewish Year Book Review:

In the tradition of The Year of Living Biblically by A.J. Jacobs and Walking the Bible: A Journey by Land Through the Five Books of Moses by Bruce Feiler comes Abigail Pogrebin’s My Jewish Year, a lively chronicle of the author’s journey into the spiritual heart of Judaism. Although she grew up following some holiday rituals, Pogrebin realized how little she knew about their foundational purpose and contemporary relevance; she wanted to understand what had kept these holidays alive and vibrant, some for thousands of years. Her curiosity led her to embark on an entire year of intensive research, observation, and writing about the milestones on the religious calendar. Whether in search of a roadmap for Jewish life or a challenging probe into the architecture of Jewish tradition, readers will be captivated, educated and inspired by Abigail Pogrebin’s My Jewish Year.

The Jewish Calendar Book Review:

The story of the Jewish calendar begins with the Exodus from Egypt- more than thirty-five hundred years ago. Over the millennia, the twelve individual Jewish tribes coalesced into the nation of Israel, adopting, adapting, and ultimately developing their own religious calendar, which has withstood the vagaries of the ages. At one time an observational calendar based on the visual sighting of the New Moon, the Jewish calendar is now a sophisticated calculated calendar based on average lunation time, while remaining true to its ancient past. A small council of rabbis guarded the secret instructions for constructing the calendar, until the mid-fourth century C.E. when, due to repressive acts and ultimate dissolution of the Jewish Court by Roman emperors, Hillel II, President of the Jewish Court in Babylonia, revealed those rules, so that Jews anywhere are able to construct their religious calendar. Today, those rules and how to apply them are, in general, neither well known, nor well understood. In The Jewish Calendar: History and Inner Workings, Second Edition, author and award-winning teacher Fred Reiss continues with the beliefs and patterns established in the first edition - clear explanations, practical examples, and chapter reviews with problems and answers. Using simple arithmetic, Reiss explains the basic details and fundamentals of the Jewish calendar. Some things new to the second edition are: The Jewish calendar, like the civil calendar, works in cycles, the most prominent of which are the sixty-one unique nineteen-year cycles, dictating, for instance, when common and leap years occur. These cycles are aperiodic, they lack a discernible pattern of appearing, repeating, vanishing, and reemerging. A new chapter is added to illuminate and resolve this mystery. We take the dates for the start of the seasons for granted. Spring, for instance, always begins on March 20 or 21, but not so in the Jewish calendar. Ancient methods are employed to determine the beginning of the seasons, one developed by Mar Samuel and one by Rabbi Ada. A new chapter solely focuses on explaining, clarifying and teaching how to use these approaches. Also new in The Jewish Calendar: History and Inner Workings, Second Edition are methods for converting Jewish dates to civil dates and vice versa, allowing for the construction of corresponding Jewish and civil calendars. The Jewish Calendar: History and Inner Workings, Second Edition answers many questions, including: How do you compute the start of the High Holy Day Rosh Hashanah? Why is Rosh Hashanah often postponed? Why have the rabbis condensed seven days into four days? The civil calendar is either 365 or 366-days long, why does the Jewish calendar have six different year lengths? The Julian calendar repeats every twenty-eight years, the Gregorian calendar every four hundred years, why does it take 689,472 years for the Jewish calendar to repeat? Why does the Jewish calendar's nineteen-year cycles act so strangely? All calendars have errors, what are the Jewish calendar's errors and what do they affect? Are there any ways to mitigate the errors? What are the steps for constructing a Jewish calendar? Each chapter ends with a review and a set of exercises, the answers to which are provided. The Jewish Calendar: History and Inner Workings, Second Edition reveals the structure, content, and interconnections within the calculated Jewish calendar in a format for the casual reader or as a textbook for self-instruction. It is a valuable resource for understanding the complexity of the Jewish calendar.

Romance of the Hebrew Calendar Book Review:

In the introduction to 'Romance of the Hebrew Calendar,' author Raphael Ben Levi writes, "This book is about relationships, I make no apologies for it. When everything has been said and done, what are we left with that endures? Relationships, borne out of agape love. This is what the deepest and most authentic relationships are composed of from beginning to end." This absorbing and ground breaking book will inspire readers to develop a deeper relationship with God, and bring restoration to those who are spiritually broken. According to the author, there is a special heartbeat that pulsates through the veins of the biblical year which has helped shape the identity of the Jewish people. Written from a Jewish messianic perspective, 'Romance of the Hebrew Calendar' contains inspirational and fresh insights that are highly engaging and provocative. The main theme is complemented by a rich compendium of poignant stories and devotions drawn from Jewish tradition, historical archives and firsthand accounts. The Jewish festivals are lovingly presented to demonstrate a unified message of redemption. The months of the Hebrew calendar are accompanied by individual sections relating to the constellation connected to each tribe as represented by their banner or flag. The Hebrew word 'mazal,' from the plural word 'mazzaroth' is associated with the patterns of stars in the sky, and we find various biblical references to it such as in the Book of Job. In addition, 'Romance of the Hebrew Calendar,' contains individual sections for each chapter relating to the jewels of the high priest's ephod, their colours and their inherent connection with the twelve tribes of Israel. The combined messages contained within the biblical feasts, the mazzaroth and the jewels of the high priest's ephod, converge to form a unified declaration of God's love, revealed in Yeshua Ha Meshiach that will capture your imagination and attention. This book is beautifully written, easy to read and contains many insights and revelations that are interwoven and presented to make it a treasure to adorn every bookshelf.
