About the Author: Hi! I’m Elizabeth Reynolds, author of the best-selling book, The Non-Jew’s Guide to Jewish Ceremonies. I’ve now written this new book, The Non-Jew’s Guide to Jewish Holidays, at the request of some of my non-Jewish friends who wanted to learn more about those holidays. Whether you’re a non-Jew looking to learn more about the Jewish religion or a Jew who, like me, grew up in a non-religious Jewish home, I think you’ll find my “guidebooks” packed with information about the Jewish culture. I’ve been married to a non-Jew for 18 years, so I’ve had abundant experience in explaining Jewish holidays and customs to my husband’s family. I hope you will find my books enriching and enjoyable. I’m also the author of Are You Ready to Be a Substitute Teacher? Practical Tips for Keeping Your Sanity. Working as a substitute has been fun, rewarding, annoying and wearisome - sometimes all in the same day. In this book, I share my experiences so you’ll be able to find more of the positives and fewer of the negatives that can accompany the job of substitute teacher.
