Words of Wisdom

"Hanukkah, which means 'dedication,' is a remembrance of the Maccabees' victory and the cleansing and rededication of the Temple in the aftermath of the revolt.  Regardless of the word's origin, Hanukkah is a holiday about the victory of faith and loyalty to God's commandments."

-The Book of Customs by Scott-Martin Kosofsky

Browse Inside: My Jesus Year

My Jesus Year
Click Here to Browse Inside! One day the son of an Orthodox rabbi discovers that his enthusiasm for Judaism is flagging and wonders what it is like to be Christian. So starts his year-long exploration of America's Bible belt with such hilarious romps as being in the mosh-pit of a Christian rock concert and the excitement of a Christian "professional" wrestling meet. This part memoir--part spiritual quest is a humorous and personal story of searching for truths and universal answers.
