Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Ron Wolfson offers a second edition of Passover: The Family Guide to Spiritual Celebration, first published in 1988. Now part of Jewish Lights's The Art of Jewish Living series, it is co-written with Joel Lurie Grishaver (the same team that brought us the series' practical and loving tribute to Hanukkah last year). The book opens with Wolfson's tender (and mouth-wateringly food-oriented) tribute to the seders of his Nebraska childhood and then unfolds with section after section of practical tips for creating memorable-and more spiritually focused-Passover celebrations.
