Eighteen Gates of Jewish Holidays and Festivals

Description : "Eighteen Gates of Jewish Holidays and Festivals is a celebration of Jewish life by the prize-winning composer, conductor, director, and poet, Issachar Miron. Described by the Jerusalem Post as a "top talent and master craftsman whose versatility has become by now legendary," Issachar Miron has created a true work of art, combining his remarkable prayers with original musical compositions, accompanied by 25 stunning illustrations by the great Jewish artist, Arthur Szyk." "Eighteen Gates of Jewish Holidays and Festivals is a compendium of holiday greetings, meditations, and prayers, organized according to the special days in the cycle of the Jewish year. Included are each of the holy days on the traditional Jewish calendar, as well as modern days of celebration or commemoration, including Yom ha-Sho'ah (Holocaust Memorial Day) and Yom ha-Atzma'ut (Israel Independence Day). Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel has remarked, "To write a Jewish prayer, one has to have a musical ear and a poetic soul. Issachar Miron has both." Wiesel notes that Miron's prayers are prayers "for both modern men and women who wish to express their joy and fear in contemporary terms."" "This beautiful volume contains over 120 prayers, 22 zemirot (songs) and niggunim (melodies) complete with musical notation, and dozens of highly informative quotations that shed light on the meaning and spirit of each special day on the Jewish calendar. And as if the extraordinary talent of Issachar Miron were not enough, the book includes 25 illustrations by Arthur Szyk (1894-1951), renowned Jewish illustrator, born in Lodz and educated in Cracow, whose stunning artwork is considered among the finest of its kind. Some of the selections from Szyk included in this volume are published for the first time in the United States." "Eighteen Gates of Jewish Holidays and Festivals is, in the words of Bel Kaufman, author of Up the Down Staircase and the granddaughter of Sholom Aleichem, "warm, witty, and wise." It is no wonder that Elie Wiesel has praised this special volume for "the depth of the timeless message it carries.""--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
