Jewish Holidays.
Abrams, Joan
This paper examines the development of Hebrew literature since the recording of Genesis and provides resources for teaching about Jewish holidays and folklore. Although originally designed for use in teaching a six-week junior high school unit, the materials included may be adapted for use with students at the elementary through senior high school levels. Following a brief overview of Hebrew literature, the paper discusses the story of the Creation, the Jewish Sabbath, the Jewish New Year, the holiday of Tishah Ba'av, the Exodus from Egypt and the related holiday of Passover, the "Book of Esther" and the origin of Purim, and the story of Chanukkah. Annotated bibliographies of resources related to each of the topics are included. (GW)
