Kimmel presents this ancient festival through stories, songs, poems, prayers, and commentary. And he makes a timeless, ever-changing holiday understandable and relevant to today's readers. With art that spans three thousand years and four continents, this elegant volume paints a portrait of a diverse people. And it links readers to a treasure trove of some of history's most precious cultural gems. Book jacket.
