About the Author:

Alfred J. Kolatch, a graduate of the Teachers Institute of Yeshiva University and its College of Liberal Arts, was ordained by the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, which subsequently awarded him the Doctor of Divinity degree, honoris causa. From 1941 to 1948 he served as rabbi of congregations in Columbia, South Carolina, and Kew Gardens, New York, and as a chaplain in the United States Army. In 1948 he founded Jonathan David Publishers, of which he has since been president and editor-in-chief.

Rabbi Kolatch has authored numerous books, the most popular of which are Great Jewish Quotations, How to Live a Jewish Life, What Jews Say About God, This Is the Torah, and the best-selling Jewish Book of Why and its sequel, The Second Jewish Book of Why. Several of his works deal with nomenclature, about which he is an acknowledged authority. The New Name Dictionary and The Complete Dictionary of English and Hebrew First Names are his most recent works on the subject. Other books by the author include Our Religion: The Torah, The Jewish Heritage Quiz Book, The Jewish Mourner's Book of Why, Who's Who in the Talmud, and The Family Seder.

In addition to his scholarly work, Rabbi Kolatch is interested in the work of the military chaplaincy and has served as president of the Association of Jewish Chaplains of the Armed Forces and as vice-president of the interdenominational Military Chaplains Association of the United States.

Review:

"Rabbi Kolatch's new book, The Jewish Home Advisor, is an indispensable volume, telling the 'hows' for every Jewish experience, from the womb to the tomb, as well as the observance of every festival in the Jewish calendar. This is truly a Jewish guide for the perplexed of our time. Every contingency is included. The book does not underestimate the intelligence of the reader or overestimate the Jewish knowledge. It covers the A to Z of Jewish living in a comprehensive and intelligible manner. It takes nothing for granted and leads the reader by the hand to a greater appreciation of Jewish living and Jewish practice. This book is a must for significant and vibrant Jewish life." -- Times Outlook

"The Jewish Home Advisor gives readers practical information and guidance relating to Jewish life. Modern Jewry is made up of many groups of diverse backgrounds and affiliations which include Orthodox, Conservative, Reform, Reconstruction, Hassidic, Ashkenazic and Sephardic. This book addresses itself to all who are Jewish . . . This is a book for reference and enjoyment." -- The Jewish Voice

"This book is a must!" -- Rabbi Saul I. Teplitz

"Whenever you see the name of Rabbi Kolatch you can be sure the book is going to be chock full of useful information. . . . Once again, he has brought out a Jewish guide to answer fundamental questions. Not only does the rabbi explain Orthodox, Conservative, Reform and Reconstructionist, but he also includes Chassidic, Ashkenazic and Sephardic differences.

. . . A copy of this book deserves to be in every Jewish home. If you know a young couple getting married or recently married, this would be a lovely and special gift. A couple beginning their family would find it particularly interesting.

It's just packed full of so much information, and organized in such a good way, it really does present 'the kind of detailed information needed by modern family committed to perpetuating Jewish tradition.'" -- The Jewish National
