Synopsis: This highly original book, spiced heavily with humor, is an anthology of essays about Jewish holidays and other calendar events. In the essays presented int he book, the reader will come to appreciate that practices considered indispensable to today's standards were once topics of heated controversy between proponents of differing interpretations of Judaism. Readers will glimpse into ancient and medieval sources and identify with predicaments that previous generations faced as they steered the precarious paths between loyalty to their heritage and relevance to their age, between pride in one's religious identity and receptiveness to outside cultures.

About the Author: Professor Eliezer Segal is currently serving as Head of the Department of Religious Studies at the University of Calgary, holding a Ph.D. in Talmud from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. In addition to his scholarly articles and monographs on talmudic and midrashic literature (including the three-volume The Babylonian Esther Midrash: A Critical Commentary), he has published extensively for non-specialist audiences on diverse topics related to Jewish history and tradition, through his popular newspaper columns and his Web site. A collection of his articles, Why Didn't I Learn This in Hebrew School? was published in 1999 by Jason Aronson. His children's book, Uncle Eli's Passover Haggadah, a rhymed version of the traditional Passover night liturgy, has been a phenomenal success in digital and printed forms, and a sequel for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur (Uncle Eli Repents) is in the works. Professor Segal has been involved in many interreligious activities, and participated in comparative projects offering Jewish perspectives on such topics as: afterlife beliefs, scripture and oral tradition, and reforms of the criminal justice system. Professor Segal resides in the western Canadian city of Calgary with his wife, Agnes, and his three sons, Yannai, Hananel, and Akiva
