Over 280 color photos and descriptive text display and discuss over 200 objects, many of which are quite rare and unusual, related to Jewish culture and experience. Sabbath candlesticks and candelabras, menorahs, Kiddush cups, Havdalah plates, spice boxes, Mezuzah cases, seder trays, marriage cups, torah pointers, a beer mug used on the festive Purim holiday, and much more are presented. Ranging from the 18th to the early 20th century, these objects take readers on an informative tour through Europe, the Middle East, and the United States, as well as through the holidays and the Sabbath. Also included are items without religious purpose, yet retaining a bold link to Jewish faith and tradition nonetheless, including veterans medals, alphabet charts translating Yiddish into English, eye charts in Yiddish, charity boxes, fans, seltzer bottles, and more. For anyone who has ever been interested in Judaism and Judaica, this book will hold great fascination
