A hilarious compendium of traditional wisdom, recipes, and lore from the authors of the bestselling Yiddish with Dick and Jane.
Modern Jews have forgotten cherished traditions and become, sadly, all- too assimilated. It’s enough to make you meshugeneh. Today’s Jews need to relearn the old ways so that cultural identity means something other than laughing knowingly at Curb Your Enthusiasm– and The Big Jewish Book for Jews is here to help.
This wise and wise-cracking fully-illustrated book offers invaluable instruction on everything from how to sacrifice a lamb unto the lord to the rules of Mahjong. Jews of all ages and backgrounds will welcome the opportunity to be the Jewiest Jew of all, and reconnect to ancestors going all the way back to Moses and a time when God was the only GPS a Jew needed.
